The subversion of everyday objects
Artist Brad Downey’s unauthorised artworks in public spaces often explore the relationships between ideas, and objects against their context.
He does this by subverting everyday objects like pavement tiles, brooms, road signs and bicycles in a surreal manner, making for some very visually arresting scenes.
Unfortunately for Brad he also has had “run-ins with police while working in cities ranging from London to Amsterdam”,
as his art and “guerilla marketing projects” straddle the border between art and vandalism.
Check out Brad’s other installations on Pinterest as they are delightful and challenging.
