Round 1 // The 48 Sheet // 2012
Brandalism began in July 2012 in the UK. Across five cities, 36 large format billboards (known as '48 sheets' in industry terms) were replaced with artworks by over 28 international artists. Dropping just before the protective brand-mania that charecterised the London Olympics that summer, the project gained international media attention and provoked a discussion about the legitimacy of outdoor advertising spaces that we are forced to interact with.
