Cold War Steve Presents... The Festival of Brexit [9780500022894]

(1 review) Write a Review

Cold War Steve has been acclaimed as the Brexit Bruegel and a modern-day Hogarth or Gillray. His Twitter feed, McFadden's Cold War, has become a cult phenomenon, with over 120,000 followers (and counting). This book contains the prime cuts of his elaborate, satirical photo collages from his Twitter feed, with further exclusive, unseen new work.

Begun as a personal reprieve from an often-bleak political climate, Cold War Steve (Christopher Spencer in real life) started collaging images of longstanding Eastender Steve McFadden (aka Phil Mitchell) into Cold War-era scenarios, using a GBP3 smartphone app while commuting.

As `Brexit Britain' begins to take shape his output has taken an increasingly surreal, satirical turn - in what some are calling `furious absurdism' - creating dystopian, absurdly funny Brexit-era landscapes populated with a rotating cast of political, cultural or otherwise newsworthy (or not) figures, and ever-present Fray Bentos pies.

A pitch-perfect marriage of Internet meme culture and the political lampoon, Cold War Steve satirises our increasingly incongruous-seeming popular political culture with quintessentially British humour.

In a time when the UK's exit from the EU looms large, Cold War Steve offers us a satirical escape from a world that seems to have slipped its moorings from reality.

    A Festival of Brexit

    Posted by A-K Gatfield on 3rd Mar 2019

    A must for those of us struggling with the utter incompetence of the Brexit fiasco. 'Coldwar Steve is keeping thousands of us laughing during a time of National Crisis. He's the best satirist in the UK. It's Art with bite. Hogarth would doff his cap.
