Someone gave me a load of Time Out Banksy posters, so i had to have a go, didn’t i? Especially after the Cans posters a few years ago. Seemed a shame not too. Spray paint on Lithographic poster 68cm x 51 cm. Got 20 of them so there may be some more versions… buy them here
Initially this was half cut for the Diet Life work last year. Only half of the Dollar was needed in the composition, and as it took days to cut, a bloody good reason was needed to finish this finger destroying thing off.

The crew of ‘nutters’ behind Creative Routes ‘MUSES CAFE’ events are once more teaming up with campaigning organisation MAD PRIDE to stage a special event to mark the international ‘HOLOCAUST DAY’ memorial.
In Germany in the 1930’s the Nazi’s put out propaganda ‘newsreels’ showing images of mentally ill and disabled people alongside slogans telling the taxpaying population that these ‘degenerate’ people were costing them money to keep alive as a justification for the ‘final solution’ of exterminating them in the concentration camps.
MAD PRIDE are asking the question ‘how far does this differ from the current government and media propaganda which aims to label all welfare benefit recipients as ‘scroungers’?’
Vulnerable people at the bottom of the social ladder are once again being made to be the scapegoat for the bankers and capitalists reckless mishandling of the economy.
At Last, its taken months, but the capture series is finished. Nine 40x 40 cm canvases that depict cultural cctv moments from a London centric perspective. “The CCTV camera is the perfect icon for Britain today, summing up the nature of the changing relationship between civil society and political state. They are an innovation in which Britain leads the world both technologically and in usage and are the visible manifestation of so many things which happen out of sight. It is almost impossible to avoid their gaze for an entire day and sitting like steel crows on their perches above us, truly they are emblematic of modern Britain.” Perry de Havilland
