    I love it.

    An avant garde reinvigoration of transgressive artform that has been encumbered by ennui. I like how it dares the viewer to challenge ones own preconceptions. Raw and violent, the subconscious themes break down traditional barriers with its narcissistic hedonism. 5 stars.

    the artist known as bear™ has taken the transgressive turdiform image beloved of the Young Brits and taken it headlong into the 21st century, literally sending it racing into the future.

    No, this font colour is an sad echo of a worn out movement, and the addition of the emoji - how jejune. Stale and sullen. Uninspiring.

    Well afaict the amount of money you make hinges on your ability to cultivate and shmooze wealthy patrons like Saatchi.

    Grayson Perry gave the reith lectures in 2013 - download those if you want a howto guide you can listen to on the bus

    i agree; utterly derivative and d'avant hier.

    please see the second part of my "Ant Writhings" trilogy:


    Mind The Gap

    :flute::pee::lazy:

    this takes the chthonic energy of the turd from Part I ( "All the King's Horses" ) and via a subtle alchemy transmutes it into liquid gold...

    I stand and applaud for All the Kings Horses Part II.

    Bold. Bold and liberated. A fresh departure from the banalities of the Turner. Reminds me of the young Jasper Johns.

      the powerful earth emanations of All the King's Horses and the liquid frissonage of Mind the Gap are melded and transcended in the third and final part of Ant Writhings;"Lunar Caustic". this Chymical Wedding of form and function vibrates with liberating, yet, perplexing energies.

      without further ado here is "Lunar Caustic":

      All three parts are available from the artist known as bear™, as well as his specially soiled t-shirts; he™ will print your name above the phrase

      "I Writhed with Ants"

      and three stains of your choice.
