I’m loving this 'memorial to the economy' piece of street art. It’s a really funny piece of politics and economy satire and one you cannot miss. Best of all, this was featured outside the Bank of England.

Of course, street artists are not the only ones to use fake memorials to draw attention to a subject. Ann Summers previously delivered a brilliant piece of guerrilla advertising using a phallus-shaped bollard.

Implications - Consumers seek out art that features more than just attractive imagery. Designs that feature a deeper meaning are appealing to shoppers who want to ignite a discussion from the purchases they make. In order to attract more buyers, companies could focus on instilling a deeper connection in their products.
