Smiley Face | Art | Street Artist | Dr.D aka Subvertiser

Acid House infiltrated all areas of our lives, shifting ideologies, personalities and directions in life. We often speak of the musicians, DJ’s and promoters but what of the artists influenced by this special time. A host of street artists and graffiti writers were dancing their socks off at Acid House parties. We won’t start naming names but we can guarantee you’ve heard their names in recent times.

One such anonymous street artist is the infamous DR.D aka Subvertiser. Working class geezer dr.d has been holding space with his subversive street art for two decades.

Having nourished a sharp mind for subverting major advertising campaigns by switching the focus of their messaging on billboards and advertising spots. The artist quickly began producing his own large scale billboard ads, plastering them around the big city. Shelf life has many factors, some are removed within days whilst others stay up for months.

Dr.d was just getting started. He produced dozens of paste up artworks. Billboard ads, posters and stickers which he single-handedly stuck across the nation. Paste up street art that cloned official notices. Subverting the intended message and raise a few eyebrows from those minds shocked into focus by the new slogan.

Three decades on with a body of artwork behind him, the time had come to celebrate thirty years since discovering an accelerator that reshaped a generation. Dr.d is still proactive today, pasting billboards and posters. He also exhibits artwork at exhibitions and galleries. Touched by Acid House the artist has created some unique artworks in homage of the movement.

 

The Artwork

This iconic Smiley Face has been recreated by the artist to represent the culmination of a thirty year journey. It comes in three different grades to highlight the emotional well being of Acid House today. The Veteran, Jaded and Rehab pieces are accurate definitions of how this generation feels in the 21st century.

A great addition to art collections and a good start if you’ve just starting collecting and enjoy owning unique handmade pieces. Artwork that increases in value the longer you have the item. It’s not the same as purchasing an art print owned by thousands of people. Anyone can have a smiley on their wall, far fewer will have a DR.D smiley in their space.
