Sly believe in bitter.
They always have a theme running in this area and this year it was mass media and lies. So I fit right in again. Photos courtesy of Kristian Buus.
Mostly placed on the old style Metropolitan line.
Started in about 2009, No Eye Contact and No Smirking also popular in toilets, some might say the natural home for my "art".
I love Big Society, don't you ? It really makes me want to go out and sweep the streets myself. Or even run my local library. I quite often turn up at A & E and ask if they want help too. I am a doctor after all.
Street art tours, can't help thinking they're a bit odd but I guess it's inevitable. Social Meeja did think this was for real in certain instances so job done. The toilet selfies and fake tans were installed in the toilet cubicles of a club under the Westway.
Floating voters, National Wealth Service, Bedroom Tax, Royal Sale. Floated in the canal near Broadway Market 2013 never seen again, apart from the doughnuts in a boat that pulled one out of the water after 20 minutes thinking they'd bagged a Banksy, oh you silly bearded sailors.

G.C.H.Q. knows you are looking at this page. What could possibly go wrong with blanket government surveillance ?
I made this piece when there was a lot of media attention for Charles Saatchi and Nigela Lawson over their stormy relationship. As Charlie is slang for a certain substance that was also cited as being part of the problem between the two I couldn't help but think there was a gag to be had. I have nothing against Charles buying an entire back catalogue of my work but would worry that would then make me his bitch.

I started the HMP London series in reaction to government plans to introduce compulsory ID cards back in the early 2000's. They've since dropped the plans. HMP stands for Her Majesty's Prison, if you don't know now you know. Photography by Tim Rich and Lesley Katon, Art Of The State and Advers.com
Stopping hereditary non-domicile tax status by birth control. This poster is obviously what brought the whole problem under control in the U.K.
Sited at Shangri-La, Glastonbury 2015.
Brandalism, look them up they're bloody brilliant at getting up where you're not supposed to. The Primate change piece was part of their massive COP21 takeover in Paris, which in light of what had just happened there was legendary. Ad Nauseum was my part in their UK based takeover. I included the monkey face to show what you can do with very little talent a plastic monkey mask and a scanner. The monkey mask was left over from a video i helped with for a folk band, the tunes called Show Of Hands, the tune was called Arrogance, Ignorance and Greed check out the video. The tune won awards my monkey acting didn't.
Curfew got a bit of a confused reaction, was it about immigration or gangs or just another bit of dr.d nonsense.
I made it with the idea that soon no-one could afford to live in central London, especially key workers like nurses, cleaners, firemen. They would soon have to vacate the streets every evening only to return the next day to actually do their job after an ever increasing commute.

USLIP is a spoof political party created for and with the Shangri-La area Glastonbury. The immigrants referred to here are those coming from every other area of Glastonbury to descend on Shangri-La.
It's shortly before the London Olympics 2012, high security alert and we're told the military have rockets on top of a block of council flats in London. I have no idea who they were going to fire them at but I'd have preferred them to be on Buckingham Palace.
The Evening Standard newspaper used to produce a hand written fly sheet to announce the days headlines next to their street vendors. Like everything it's now produced electronically and in a regular font. I managed to get enough of them together to recreate the original hand made style.
Money's too tight and Aint nothing going on are photographed at Dance Against The Deficit protest held outside the Bank Of England.
The Cocaine piece was taken with permission from a hand drawn newspaper by Robert Rubbish, look him up he's brilliant.
Too much tech given to children, if you're about to have kids read Toxic Childhood by Sue Palmer.

I hear Duffy's selling coke is actually me having a pop at singer Duffy. No sooner was she on the scene (sounding a little like Amy) when she appears on a bizarre coca cola TV advert. I like my singers to have Amy's chutzpah, not sell out as soon as the corporations get their cheque books out (bit old school dr.d I don't think they have cheque books anymore).

Produced this one a long time before the Panama Papers revealed we weren't actually all in this together.

and the Degeneration Game both used at Shangri-La Glastonbury 2014 I think. Can't remember who took the snaps but I love these ones.
The London graffiti tunnel tribute to Edward Snowden.
Spotted this board the morning of the vote on whether our troops should get more involved in the Syrian air strikes. Thought the imagery was a bit odd so added my text.
At Whitecross Street Art Show.

If you can't pay was from Shangri-La Glastonbury.
In case you forgot who was trying to dick about with the NHS before 'what a' Jeremy Hunt it was Andrew Lansley. No doctors were hurt in this stunt and no emergency services attended the scene.
