Panicky in the UK’ BSMT presents a subversion art exhibition by Dr.D (aka Subvertiser) with Benjamin Irritant and Lazy Edwin.
This is the end of a second decade making street art for Dr.D ( aka @Subvertiser ) and the second solo show. There won’t be another one for ten years. ‘Panicky in the UK’ is a collection of the past 20 years of Dr.D’s work that takes like a sampler from the signage of the street and remixes it with the misheard and repurposed phrases of everyday conversations.

Dr. D aka Subvertiserhas been like the window wiper to the rain of advertising we suffer daily. His bus stop and billboard interventions have forced us to stop, recalibrate and question what we have seen and believed for twenty years! Dr. D will be showing alongside two contemporaries, Benjamin Irritant and Edwin who also work with humorous word play and anti-establishment rhetoric while having a keen eye on the climate emergency. Benjamin Irritant stabs at capitalism with surreal collage and Edwin turns street art on it’s head, refusing to beautify thereby pushing against the commercial machine that Public Art has become.

This isn’t just decoration chasing likes and pound notes. This is genuine street art. To make the show have some worth beyond just pictures on walls, part of the show will be fund raising for a food bank in the ‘Panic Buy’.

BSMT has already raised funds for Extinction Rebellion and continuing in this environmentally sound consciousness, work in the show has been produced using repurposed and upcycled consumer goods and advertising detournement.

‘Panicky in the UK’ opens at BSMT Urban Art gallery with a private view April 2nd and will run until April 19th.
