Another nod towards next Sunday’s Brick Lane Art Car Boot Fair then.
Pure Evil had them lining up right across the car park last year as he screen printed pieces in the back of his big orange van at £20 a time. This year he’s at it again with a particularly good looking Black Queen, alongside a nod towards one hundred years since the outbreak of the First World War as well as a gloriously tongue in cheek print called Flippers – a flipper being a person who buys a piece of art and then immediately looks to make a profit out of it by putting it straight up on ebay. THis yewar, Sir Peter Blake’s answer to those who bought his prints and immediately “flipped” then is to have any potential buyers sign an agreement to say the piece will not be re-sold, that and to demand the buyer produces photo ID. Pure Evil’s answer to screen-grab an image from one of last year’s ebay flippers and turn it in to a £20 screen print for this year…
Meanwhile, Pam Hogg says “Stall by the wall..I-con t shirts n cards etc..come splash that cash!”
It all happens on Sunday June 8th, gates open at midday, get there early if you’re after a slice of art from a big name, or avoid the rush and get the pick while everyone else fights over a Peter Blake they want to flip….
