Artists thoughts: British Plum, Work no 6

The name of the piece is ‘TAX FREE ARTWORK’. This, being one of the smaller works out of the collection was the chance to rediscover a love for Lino and a new way of cutting quite sporadically. The way this was done was by working in sections. The images are abstract but I was watching a documentary about basquiat along side whilst I was drawing and there’s a few nods to him and his style in there with the music scene in downtown queens featuring too. The name comes from the struggling artists who were living around that time of basquiat and others like him who fought they’re way through poverty by making some really abstract creations and gaining their names as famous painters/artists.
