Well rather than a weekly 1p piece of art on ebay, it shall be an ongoing series, schedules are not the thing, rather then once a week. more a, ongoing series of 1p piece will go up throughout the year. The second one is already up… “SEA NYMPHS” – Acrylic, spray paint and a piece painted on an glossy printed band promo poster 40cm x 55cm (Feb 2014)
“Part of an ongoing series of paintings on top of marks made by others. An old glossy promo poster from the 1990s, a promo poster for excellent Cardiacs off-shoot band Sea Nymphs. Painted on. This is a one off signed piece of art” Sea nymphs are a band we worked with quite a bit a few years ago, released a single, put on a few gigs, organised John Peel sessions and such, that was then though, this is now, and old posters are for painting on.
The Sea Nymphs piece is currently being auctioned via E.bay, opening price 1p (plus postage)
Other pieces currently being auctioned on ebay, including the fund-raising piece
