What gives? the basic idea of what I'm getting at...
Help me, Help you.
After 20 years- and literally thousands of pieces made and sold from the pavement to the top end of town, my new aim is to become the most widely collected yet truly non-commercial artist in Australia. I hope to not only donate the majority of my life’s work to anyone who cares to have it- at little to no cost for either giver or receiver.
There is a lot of art stacked away out there in the world, and also a lot of walls…can’t a simple way be found to solve this quandary?
This first project will be called: ‘Espontáneo’ -a Spanish term for a crowd member who spontaneously leaps into the ring of a bullfight, usually using there own coat or jacket as a cape to goad the bull (also now used in reference to a ‘streaker’ in sporting culture). A term- I thought, which sums up nicely the idea of going against the well-established art-industry mechanisms and commercial model of ‘value’…and just getting punk about your own contribution to history.
You can get involved simply by re-posting and participating online through social-networking, blogs and tweets- and if you happen to be interested in having some of my work for free, please contact me and become part of a bigger idea.
