Animated Banksy by Made By ABVH

Animated Banksy is a marvelous series of animated GIF images, made up from famous satirical Banksy street art, created by Serbian artist ABVH of the Tumblr blog Made By ABVH. It is truly amazing how adding a slight degree of motion to an originally motionless piece of artwork can really amplify the message being put out by the artist.

Map 06

Japanese designer yuri suzuki has sent designboom images of his ‘london underground circuit maps’ project developed
as part of the designers in residence program at the london design museum, on show until january 13th, 2013.

responding to ‘thrift’ as a theme, suzuki’s work explores communication systems in consumer electronics.
a printed circuit board (PCB) is used as a precedent for developing a electrical circuit influenced by harry beck’s iconic
london underground map diagrams. by strategically positioning certain speaker, resistor and battery components throughout the map,
users can visually understand the complex networks associated with electricity and how power is generated within a radio.

Brandalism, An Anti-Billboard Guerilla Art Campaign in the UK

Brandalism was a recent anti-advertising campaign in which an international team of 25 artists contributed artworks that were covertly installed on billboards in the UK. You can see the results of the campaign on the Brandalism gallery page.

Following on from the guerilla art traditions of the 20th Century and taking inspiration from the Dadaists, Situationists and Street Art movements, the Brandalism project will see the largest reclamation of outdoor advertising space in UK history as artists challenge the authority and legitimacy of the advertising industry. We are tired of being shouted at by adverts on every street corner so we decided to get together with some friends from around the world and start to take them back, one billboard at a time.

For more billboard subversion, see the Billboard Liberation Front.
