Get Angry And Riot, London Member Since April 2011 Artist Statement Artist working in east London.
I work doing web design, graphic design and music.
This collection is based on the original "Keep Calm and Carry On" posters that were released from government archives at the time of the collapse of the banking system, and have been copied into ubiquity.
The original posters were not released but created at a time when Britain was being bombed heavily in World War II.
Their use as a means to pacify the population at the time of great economic hardship and gross corporate theft prompted me to do a series of based on the real intent being government and other establishment messages, and companion posters declaring a reasonable reaction to what has been going on.
