DR D (UK).
After failing his art GCSE (10th grade in the U.S.) dr.d embarked on a plethora of glamorous jobs including rat catcher; building site labourer; taxi radio controller and burger van man to name a few. In recent years he’s become known as one of the UKs longest running Subvertisers with over 23 years of visual activism on the streets of London and beyond!
From flyposting his own posters to rejigging existing billboards to create new messages, dr.d has been tackling the age old problem that ‘advertising shits in your head’ with equally hilarious and shocking results. His ‘Curfew – Social Cleansing’ posters are so well made that people in Aberdeen asked when the curfew started! With a move into faux street signs and ever more elaborate interventions, dr.d is sure to leave a mark on the city that goes beyond pictures on walls and looks at the core issues of our political class.
