Subersive anti-Olympic sponsor art is springing up all over London. fantastic stuff!

The activist art fraternity are getting really busy and there is going to be spome really imaginative stuff about the place.

What a shame if this takes the shine of some of the slick branding!

Artist joins the protest against Dow Chemical sponsorship of the London Olympics with a billboard artwork in Bhopal.

From the ‘City Journal’, Kerala: 

Sayed Irshad Ali, from Udaipur district in Rajasthan, is in Bhopal these days to showcase his contemporary art work, including hoardings and posters, in various public places.

He compares two major industrial disasters - the 1984 Bhopal tragedy and 2010’s oil leak from British Petroleum’s underwater drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico off the US coast.

"I am raising two main points through my artwork. Firstly, I am comparing these two manmade tragedies. In the first case, human beings died, and in the other, fish. The families of 500,000 Bhopal gas victims, even after 27 years, are still waiting for justice, whereas the US made BP pay a compensation of $20bn for dead fish and environmental damage in the Gulf of Mexico," Ali said

A great photoshop mock-up of how the London Olympic Stadium might look if LOCOG go ahead with the crazy idea of allowing Dow Chemical to supply the nasty plastic ‘wrap’.
