Sam and I have installed some of the paintings from MASS into the Tin Drum, in Kemptown, Brighton. It’s interesting to see how well [or not] they work in a different space, and hopefully a few more Brightonians will get to enjoy them.
Once upon a time the term ‘geek’ or ‘nerd’ was used as an insult, it’s a testament to how far we have come that now we can comfortably talk of ‘geek chic’, and those who were once the oppressed have now become the champions. This painting is of my friend Richard, someone who is proud to be a geek, and has no shame in it.
UPDATE Wow, first Boing-Boing then Gizmodo decided to blog about the painting, welcome strangers, please take your time to look around.
