I created an artwork for Brandalism that looks at the theme of advertising causing eating. A typical perfume/beauty advert has a model surrounded by flowers. I have shown the model as malnourished and decaying. Eating disorders cause early death and I wanted people to think about what they are seeing everyday.
The project saw 24 prominent artists comple the world’s first international collaborative ‘subvertising’ campaign on outdoor billboards across the UK as they seek to challenge the destructive impacts of the advertising industry. Renowned street artists such as Ron English, Robert Montgomery, Broken Fingaz, Know Hope and Banksy collaborator Paul Insect have contributed art works that have been installed by a team of guerilla artists a fortnight before the London 2012 Olympic Games in one road trip. This saw 35 anti-advertising artworks installed in Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and London.
