Michael Dickinson

by Disphotic

At the Occupy LSX protest in the city of London I noticed some rather amusing collages pasted to a wall. After a bit of research I feel fairly sure they were made by Michael Dickinson, a member of the Stuckists who was in the news a while ago when he was put on trial in Turkey for insulting the Turkish prime minister by depicting him in a collage as a dog being awarded a ribbon by George W. Bush. The case gained more significance as at the time Turkey’s attempts to join the EU were dependent on it demonstrating improvements in human rights.

Here are a couple that I saw at LSX:

More of Dickinson’s work is available on the intertubes and on the Stuckism website.
