Check back every day for inspiration…
What to Do Today: See Rare Art by Harland Miller, David Shrigley, The Connor Brothers and Banksy
TYPE will display a rich collection of exclusive and never before seen original paintings, drawings and limited editions by the four artists celebrated for their aesthetic, painterly pictures overlaid with witty text and deadpan delivery. In a tour de force of British humour, the exhibition conveys the way in which artists employ sarcasm to portray the absurdity of everyday life.
‘Anyone claiming to be a genius certainly isn’t, and any country bestowing on itself the accolade of greatest nation on earth clearly has some narcissistic tendencies. Thankfully in the UK (these days) we are aware of our own mediocrity. The British are known for their dark self-deprecating humour and this reflects the art we make. It is also a useful distraction from our inability to draw well.’ – Mike Snelle from The Connor Brothers
