One of the strongest political channels in the street art movement is the questioning of what is allowed and what isn’t allowed in our shared public spaces. Advertisements are almost everywhere we look today in most major cities, and some artists and activists question what this does to our individual and societal psyche. What effect does being pummeled by consumerism, commodity, and lifestyle advertisements have on us? Well, one very well known critique is the British artist, Mobstr. Mobstr is known for his urban interventions, and progression pieces, which he “collaborates” with city cleaners/buffers. Today we look at a couple new pieces by Mobstr which invite observers to questions both the lack of democratic process involved in what happens in our public spaces, and also the effects of technology, image, and self-absorption. Well done, Mobstr!
