Billbored: Make your own slogan
We'd imagine that even the most staunch labour supporter might baulk at seeing a sight such as this (artwork by David Anderson) on their way home from work... It's one of dozens of political slogans devised by a host of artists and designers which are being projected onto various London buildings throughout this week....
Billbored is the brainchild of Pollocks - an art collective founded and headed up by artist and curator Josef Valentino, who describes the project as "a viral art initiative aiming to empower people. The political parties aren't inspiring us," he continues, "so we will have to inspire ourselves."
The basic idea of the project is simple: anyone can log in to the billbored.org website, look through the gallery of submitted work (which includes slogans and artwork by the likes of Pete Fowler, Stuart Semple, Neville Brody and, apparently, champion spoon-bender, Uri Geller) and, if they so wish, upload their own slogan / artwork...

by Gerald Laing
This Tesco logo mash-up is by Pollocks founder and "creative dictator" Josef Valentino
Stuart Semple's artwork sees London as "Middletown"
All through this week a team of guerrilla projectionists have been out and about in London projecting these messages, and artworks onto various buildings and structures around town...
To see more of the artworks and slogans submitted to the project - and to submit your own (apparently it's not too late) - visit billbored.org
WOW! Absolutely inspired!!!!!!
I really like these posters, i think they reflect the mood of the nation as well as being fun, politics could do with a campaign like the ones above.
I completely agree with Victoria. These posters are very exciting and appear to have tapped into a real nerve with people and politics. Congratulations!!
Anthony Burrill's work is instantly recognisable, so eye catching! Also, Gerald Laing image is great.
"Its Your Right To Moan About Politics".
In actual fact, its highly illegal.
In the bill of human rights, it clearly states that you have no right to life if you protest against the government....
You have read it haven't you? You must have time to read all the legislation that entangles you right?
fantastic. great concept!!
Are there more images of the projections? Very Exciting!!!!
Congratulations on such a fantastic project.
agree - burrills work is fantastic. his strong words and powerful graphics are a perfect fit for this project, will there be more in the future??
