Your Space Or Mine p.3

What’s it all about? Scientist Peter Higgs was finally proved right at Cern and now shares the Nobel Prize for theorising a sub-atomic particle that holds all matter in the universe together. Without the field created by the Higgs boson, you, me, this pamphlet, would all disintegrate at the speed of light. So this issue […]

Rut Blees Luxemburg

Faux horizons that on closer inspection offer resistance: deceptive surface panoramas. Luxemburg’s London Dust series casts the ponderance and gravity of urban materiality – strip metal, ply, woven plastic, stone and scaffold – against evanescent dreams of corporate regeneration fading, stained and buckled, gathering dust. www.rutbleesluxemburg.com

Carly Scott

Carly Scott’s practice more often than not conjures striking and beautiful images of very attractive people. Her more personal projects – I’m thinking of The Trip, her family photo. essays and Untitled featured here – also suggest a keen awareness as to how materialities can point to social relations of inequality and to everyday life […]

Landscape With Bag – Daniel Mayrit

  • 20 January 2014
  • In blog

Daniel Mayrit’s carefully constructed image Landscape With Bag from his post-riot series Suburban Scenes prompts a number of questions. To what extent do ‘services’ like Google Street View come to determine or confirm prejudiced views of certain sections of the urban populace? Surveillance photographs are now such a staple in the mainstream media, how does […]

Adrian Burnham – visual artist & urbanist

Adrian Burnham allies his Road Works series of photographs to a shallow archaeology of sorts, looking that bit closer at what’s underfoot, the ‘illegible writing’. “There’s an artwork by Brad Downey where he cuts out two sections of cobbles, old and new and resets the old section in the new and vice versa. It makes […]

Art is Trash

Spanish-born Francisco de Pajaro has been showing us what rubbish art really is. We wouldn’t normally condone graffing over postering sites but we reckon in this instance, it’s probably okay. Disposal art in its truest sense. http://depajaro.blogspot.co.uk/

Barbican Promo

To promote the wide range of releases available at the Barbican Cinema, London, Jack Arts ran a campaign with an East London focus using 48-sheets and 4-sheet posters. It showed off the range of cutting edge new movies as well as cheaper tickets on certain days of the week. We utilised different artwork for different […]

Diabolical is excited to start of the year by supporting 29 out of 41 artist and producer nominees for the BRIT Awards 2014. Not to blow our own trumpet (too much) but we’d like to think we did our part in bringing the word about some of the best British talent to the streets of […]

G.C.H.Q. Always Listening To Our Customers by Dr. D

  • 20 January 2014
  • In blog

In response to the rocking allegations made by whistleblower Edward Snowden, Liberty (civil liberties and human rights orientated political party in the UK) has harnessed the talents of the brilliant Dr. D (http://www.drd.nu/). His “G.C.H.Q. Always Listening To Our Customers” piece has been drafted as the focal point for a Liberty fundraising leaflet. We highly […]
