Meaningless Plaques

Since 1886, various organizations (currently English Heritage) have placed circular, blue plaques around London to commemorate where important events have taken place or where prominent people have lived. The Dirty Square Gallery in London has decided to spoof the English’s quest to honor themselves by placing meaningless blue plaques around London.

Reminds us of An Ordinary Building.

Old Lady Neighborhood Watch

On a recent trip to Portugal, we noticed a massive number of senior citizens looking out of windows from morning till night. A common sight throughout Europe, these old-timers are usually on the lookout to report any suspicious behavior in their neighborhood.

Because of this trend, we are extremely amused by “The Senoritas of Lisboa,” a project by CC, a Portuguese art collective. This group has gone around Lisbon and placed signs parodying the Securitas (a Swedish security firm) logo underneath old ladies who seem to be permanently perched at their windows.

Subway Shark

It’s not safe to go in the water…or the Metro! Kapo, a Spanish street artist, created this shark coming out of what appears to be a subway ventilation shaft. Note the detail of the water splashing around the shark to give the mural a terrifying 3D effect.

Re-branding McDonald’s

The Billboard Liberation Front have announced “a new advertising improvement campaign” targeting McDonald’s billboards. They’re calling the re-branding effort “I’m Sick Of It.” The first hacked billboard appeared at the corner of California and Hyde in San Francisco.

Looks like they are doing work for Phillip Morris as well:
