Please Do Not Feed The Tourists
Hand Printed Silk Screen
The original artwork was banned by the London Underground.
"I got commissioned to do a piece by Art Below and Le Cool. I had carte blanche to do whatever I wanted. I love signs and all the ways we’re bombarded with communication and I was thinking about the Underground and who uses it. I did a piece saying “Please do not feed the tourists” and they were appalled. I was being pedantic and wouldn’t give in. I did some variations of it and eventually got an email saying they wouldn’t be displaying it and never wanted me to do any work for them ever again. I turned in into an art print instead which is available from my shop."
