Not-So-Random Acts of Brandalism

With the London 2012 Olympics comes the strict enforcement of branding regulations, meaning the “branding police” will be out and about to “protect sponsors’ exclusive rights.” In light of this, and maybe McDonald’s French-fry monopoly of the games, a group of street artists have banded together under the name of Brandalism. Their aim is to put up artwork “that seeks to confront the ad industry and take back our visual landscapes,” while focusing on the 100,000 billboards that are in the UK. They have already struck five cities and hope to target even more. Here is some the work they’ve done so far.
