This work is one of the early pieces from Dotmaster’s ‘High Class Trash’ series. While highlighting the overgrowing issue of plastic pollution by uncontrollable consumerism, in this case Marks & Spencer's turned into Sadism & Masochism, it takes a humorous poke at
the famous street artist Banksy.
Leon Seesix, working under the alias ‘The Dotmaster’ takes a sideways look at popularism. The Dotmaster possesses a typically English sense of humor, throwing two fingers up at the passer-by with his impeccably detailed stencil work.
As the founding father of C6.org, a media-based collective of art-pranksters active throughout the 1990’s, they bridged the gap between art and activism with attention snatching events that pulled no punches. Hitting the headlines worldwide in 1997 with “Man in a box” they incarcerated and starved one of their members in a surveillance cube in a gallery in Brighton. Their work was eclectic, merging graffiti, new media and performance from the street, night clubs and galleries generating a steady stream of irreverent broadcasts.
