Over a five day stretch, the Brandalism project saw 25 artists from 8 countries come together for the biggest subvertising campaign in UK history. Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Bristol and London all saw billboard spaces co-opted by these street artists.

The term brandalism was first coined by writer Sean Tejaratchi and would be later popularised by Banksy. The initiative covers a gamut of artists from diverse disciplines such as: street art, graffiti, political art, culture jamming, photo montages and illustrations.

The main site where you can see all of the artwork, thoughts, themes and reasons for this initiative is at: http://brandalism.org.uk

The gallery is still being updated, but it’s interesting to hear why some of these artists feel so strongly against the advertising industry. You can get a taste of some of their thoughts here.

For now, please enjoy the gallery below, as it’s quite likely many of the pieces have already been taken down or covered up.
