1/1
Bready Hell

 

May 2017

Medium: PVA glue, bread packagings(ones I bought and ate only, no cheating) on canvas

 

Exhibited at K-Fest Music and the Arts 2017

 

Story:

1, I have collected bread packagings for over 5 months not knowing what to do with.

 

2, done the research on each brand's history to find out their establishment year and story.

 

3, then researched those years in art and found out that some world's renowned artists were born in the same year as each brand. e.g. George Dunlop Leslie 1835.

 

4, Tried to replicate each artists' representative work by only using each brand packaging.
