  • Has anyone seen Hurst’s latest exhibition where he’s sawn a one trick pony in half and placed it in formaldehyde?

    James says:
  • Gee, I´ve just loved the thing ! Simple and cool. The whole stuff reminds me the 60´s shaping of Japanese tv series heroes. Awkwardly it also made me remember the legend of that mountain up in Mars, the one that looks like a human face and revved up interesting and not-so-interesting hysteria all over the world. A britaward for the britaward.

    Marco Riccioppo says:
  • Polka dots, giant bronze fetuses, student-level paintings….dull dull and duller. But if, as Warhol said, “making money is the greatest art of all,” this guy is the greatest. I’ll give him that.
