CutUp Collective


The anonymous street art / urban interventionist CutUp Collective is based in East London, but have been subverting advertising on the streets of cities world wide. The main focus of the group is to disrupt the everyday experience of passerbys and to promote discussion through altering preexisting urban structures, namely billboards. They have been achieving this by ripping down existing advertising and “cutting-up” the images to make new collaged images that are reapplied to different advertisements.

In addition to their street-based projects, the group has also exhibited internationally with shows such as “Play: Experience the Adventure of Our Cities” at the Urbis Centre for Urban Art in Manchester UK, “Satellites: an i-cabin project” at the Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, New York and “La Vida Te Espera”, NIU, Barcelona.
