Dr D

Dr. D is a legend of street art subversion, using his insightful observations to ‘doctor’ everything from big brand billboards to political posters. Each ‘rip’ forms a defiant protest and a good kick up the backside to those who choose to look on.

Dr D’s subverted images often appear with perfect timing to respond to current affairs and social debate, and are a paradox by definition; each piece charged with a powerful passivity. Indeed, the artist’s mischievous mode of social commentary is clear to see for those who are actually willing to take a look around- Dr. D urges you to raise an enlightened middle finger to the establishment!

Dr D's Process

Dr D’s process is unique and completely individual to him. A billboard poster by trade, the artist has access to a wide variety of locations for his work, which he creatively exploits to the very best of his ability; using wheat pasted text and images to compose some of the most provocative pieces on the street today.

A selection of his famed TFL billboard ‘rips’ have been recreated in a series of limited edition, screen printed artworks and the artist has also produced some fantastic original pieces, including a unique sculptural piece created for his appearance in Nelly Duff’s ‘Banger Art’ exhibition.
