A critic reviews it thus:

“Rare is it that we find such conflict focused in one artwork. Often we search for unities amidst the disjuncture, harmony among discord, but through the sheer contradiction of these images, Robson sets out a genuine challenge to our interpretative skills.”

Pirates! - L'art du détournement culturel
de Sophie PUJAS (Auteur).

The art of subversion by the author of the best seller Street art, urban poetry.

“ Theorised by the situationists in the 1950s, these diversions represent creativity under the auspices of the wink, or flirting with the absurd, but also exhibiting a permanent air of suspicion. From now on, in the era of 2.0, everyone can appropriate the cult images and play with them. This art of subversion is embedded in everyday life and continues to is developing new territories emerging as a new media.

Between nostalgic fetishism and ironic disruption, the masterpieces of the past and pop icons are revisited.

Through six thematic chapters and twenty portraits, this book explores the world of these creatives who have the art of unusual rapprochement, manipulation, metaphor. They upset the codes and deconstruct the icons of the history of art or pop culture, manipulate words, hack public space, heckle with reality, claim a salutary incivility, give birth to a new reverie of familiar objects.”
