Pictorial Heroes

Pictorial Heroes began as a collaboration between two graduates ( Doug Aubrey and Alan Robertson ) from Maidstone College of Art seminal Fine Art Video course. With the legacy of the Falklands War and the Miner’s Strike leaving a deep emotional and creative scar, Pictorial Heroes was their way of collectively responding to the times they were living through in Thatcher’s Britain. Pictorial Heroes was a fusion between art, pop, politics and technology, and took the form of single screen tapes and multi-screen gallery happenings and installations. Foremost amongst them were installations at the SSA, McLellan Galleries and the Seagate in Dundee. They have shown at several international video art festivals, including the Worldwide Video Festival in Den Haag.
