Culture-Jamming Decapitator Hacks London Ads
I'm glad to see that the subversive art of culture-jamming is being kept alive in an appropriately gory and 'stumpified' form.
Renegade artist and head-hunter the Decapitator has been targeting the streets of London with a signature style of graffiti tag - eerily removing the heads from major adverts around town, replacing them with ghastly, gory stumps.
Based on the images uploaded to his/her Flickr stream, "The East London Decapitator" as he/she has been dubbed, is only striking mainstream advertisements[.]
The Decapitator's culture jamming pieces are reminiscent of the style of popaganda artist Ron English, whose seminal work in billboard subvertising involved covering mainstream advertisements with his own art.
