Life Art In Life

Art I love to look at: Russian mafia grave art....

Prisoner art..

you can see all, buy and find out more at Koestler Trust exhibition at the Royal Festival Hall here - at weekends female offender curators of the exhibition take guided tours - brilliant scheme

and fairground art..

I love the silky airbrushed pseudo-realistic style of fairground art - makes it all the more exciting when you are there if they have the big colourful hordings everywhere. And I love the way they use celebrity to add to the smoke and mirrors effect of the fairground. Great people-watching too I always find.

Great post - and thanks for the link to the exhibition. I'll definitely be dropping by for a look.

The airbrush art reminds of 70s Californian custom cars/vans..

I'm a mild fan of mural art - There's a bizarre one City Corner Cafein Petticoat Lane, and the curry cafe Sweet and Spicy on brick Lane has one of Asian wrestlers in, well, snug-fit pants..

Thanks for the Koestler Trust art exhibition reminder. I've been to it a couple of times at Wormwood Scrubs and the ICA. It's always worth a look. Bought a batik once called Nova - of a twoc'd Vauxhall Nova. I like it. Though it's not universally popular in our living room.

I am sometimes sent art from a prisoner on death row - drawings of Donald Duck or hands in prayer on white handkerchiefs; moving and bewildering images.
Because my granddad used to work the rides at traveling fairs - I've always has a soft spot for fairground art, especially the way it comes alive with music and the smell of oil and cotton candy!
