Massive Attack art censored

Heligoland
Are you shitting me?!? It’s too streetsy so it’s a no go? This censorship is ridiculous.

“We can’t use any of the Heligoland artwork I’ve painted for the posters on London Underground. They won’t allow anything on the tube that looks like ‘street art’. They want us to remove all drips and fuzz from it so it doesn’t look like it’s been spray-painted, which is fucking ridiculous. (…)”

“(…) It’s the most absurd censorship I’ve ever seen. We’re hosting pop-up galleries [on] tour this year. We’ve got UnitedVisualArtists; Steve Bliss’s No Protection artwork which was like an early prototype for his Grand Theft Auto stuff; and all the extras from Mezzanine and 100th Window.”
