the brandalism project
Fed up with consumer culture and giant ads that practically scream at passerby', a UK crew of 25 has set out to reclaim 50 U.K. billboards. Inspired by 20th century guerilla art and armed with the goal to "confront the ad industry and take back our visual landscapes." Or as the brandelism team puts it, "taking the piss with a point"
The collaborative project sees 25 artists from 8 countries working together to share their talents in such diverse disciplines as street art, graffiti, illustration, political art, photo montage and culture jamming. The results, 33 billboards down 17 to go.
