Her highness The Baroness Carrie von Reichardt and sculptor Nick Reynolds look like they’ve finally finished their session with the elephant Phoolan and all the Treatment Rooms crew – epic effort to make this incredible piece, it’s been a real labour of love for them. Justly rewarded by Phoolan’s positioning at The Natural History Museum. Brrrring on the elephant stampede!

Bill Nighy, Tom Felton and some other aspiring celebs came to Cordy House to see the work of Dr D, Wreckage, Teddy Baden, Peter Dunne, Carrie Reichardt, War Boutique, Dotmasters, David Walker and kennardphillipps. So I thought it would be a shame not to film it. Here are the results for your ocular pleasurement:

Hold tight all crew!

Mutate Britain and The Robin Hood Tax – celebrity election special!

Posted in Art, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 16, 2010 by jack lomax

Massive thanks to everyone who came yesterday to support our Robin Hood Tax campaign day. Hannah Cameron (no relation!), Nicky Wimble, Richard Curtis, Bill Nighy, Noel Clarke, Tom Felton and Joe Dempsie – great to have you all here and using your skills and profile to contribute to this excellent campaign. You can support it here

I’ve really enjoyed the chance to make some Street Art with real substance happen. The whole thing really was a ‘no brainer’ – not least because the contributing artists have been making work that relates to the bastard bankers’ social crimes for some time! Did you know that when the RHT campaign was launched Goldman Sachs attacked it? Pretty low. Check this Telegraph article and this Dr D subvertisment. My respect and thanks goes to Dr D, Pete Dunne, Wreckage, Teddy Baden, Her Imperial Majesty The Baroness Carrie von Reichardt, Dotmasters, War Boutique, kennardphillipps and David Walker.

I think the best Street Art criticises consumer culture, presents ideas for change and makes a city-wide game that is an alternative to the commercial visual drivel of the information age we are all immersed in… down with visual drivel, up with real substance!

All conquering respect and love to all the Mutationerizers who get it done, including but not limited to… Liam Hayhow, Garfield Hackett, Joe Rush, Wreckage, Sam Haggerty, Teddy Baden, and Hugo Toland!
