Anti-Advertising Street Art

‘Brandalism’ Billboards are reclaimed from the advertising industry that they aim to condemn. Stating the common, but true to the idea that people are constantly bombarded with too many advertisements, this street art campaign is working to fight back against advertisers one billboard at a time.

Inspired by the guerrilla art movements of the 20th century, this campaign is the largest reclamation of outdoor space that the UK has ever seen. The Brandalism team consists of 25 artists from all over the world. The wide range of artists who have worked on the project make for a diverse range of styles, all tackling the same anti-advertising theme.

The Brandalism Billboards campaign makes one think of how cities could be different if they were adorned with inspiring public art, rather than littered with advertisements.
