BBC News – Street art posters latest adverts to be censored by TfL

Not the most likely trio, but all three have featured on posters censored for use on the Tube by Transport for London (TfL) or its advertising contractors.

A poster showing the band Massive Attack’s artwork for their new album Heligoland is the latest advert to be rejected by TfL’s advertising department.

The original artwork, painted by the band’s Robert del Naja, which depicts a face, had to be redesigned after TfL decided it looked too much like graffiti.
