London Street Art: Mentalgassi for Amnesty

Amnesty International is using street art to highlight one of their ongoing campaigns to help a man called Troy Davis who has been on death row in the States for 19 years. They believe he may have been wrongly convicted of the murder he claims he did not commit and that a recent decision may have him back on track for execution. They’ve launched a petition here.

Troy’s face can be seen at three different fence sites around London – poster pieces made by German street artist mentalgassi. The faces can only be seen from the side and the bars of the fence resemble the bars of a prison cell. Here’s a video and a few images for you…
