Art in Place of Adverts

Art Everywhere

Online voting opened this week to shortlist 50 of the 100 works of art that have been selected to turn the UK into the ‘world’s biggest gallery’. 15,000 billboard spaces across the UK have been donated for the project for 2 weeks in August (10th-25th). The collection reflects works of British artists in UK collections; a mix of historic, modern and contemporary artworks where copyright was granted and high resolution images were available for BIG posters.

The idea for Art Everywhere came to Richard Reed as he was walking to work in Shepherds Bush and spotted a beautiful picture with no title or logo on a poster site, which he noted “put a bounce into my step – there is something so nourishing, exciting and surprising in seeing art in places you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see it.”
