Mark Wallinger.

Wallinger; along with Banksy, Whiteread etc, another of Charles Saatchi’s tamed & clipped golden geese.

Will he be giving any of his £25,000 Turner prize to a war charity of Brian Haw’s choice?
Will he use it in any way in appreciation of the source who “inspired” him?

What do you think.

” I’d like to express gratitude to Mark Wallinger for providing us with this wondrous art. Congratulations on your much deserved Turner Prize. I shall certainly be following Mark’s art in future. The bear wandering round a room for ten days is genius. How did you create such a masterpiece? I could probably study art all my life not be able to come up with such a stunning example of art like this. I’m sure some un-enlightend people just see a twat in a bear suit, but those people I say this: Look closely, take your time to feel the art. And maybe you’ll not just see a twat in a bear suit, but a big beautifully artistic, prize-winning twat in a bear suit.” – a public comment.

Undoubtedly more comely in the outfit…

Below.  A perfect example of the art establishment playing politics through its yes men – a neutered and sanitized version of the reality of Brian Haw’s long-suffering attempt to highlight Blair’s and Westminster Labour MPs’ war crimes against humanity.

You may have noticed, if you saw this excuse for an art exhibition at Tate Liverpool, that Haw’s
emotive language against Tony Blair ( PM at the time),  and prominent on his original protest wall,
was all but removed .

THE REAL ARTIST ( Below)

A simple man with love and courage in his heart.
That’s real art.

  2. When you’re guilty of such a crime why not conceal yourself in a hideous costume, BEAR faced cheek me thinks, I think Brian Haw was very gracious when interviewed, perhaps he thought that it was a bit more publicity I don’t know, me, I’d have wanted to kill the bloke.

    • Me too Bradd’s. I guess it just goes to show Haw’s humility and total lack of personal ambition, along with 100% commitment to the cause.
      As for the bear suit “work”; if you look at the stuff Wallinger’s come up with in the past, his Yogi wanderings look positively Leonardo Da Vinci league.

      BTW I am considering your kind offer to be Prime Minister very seriously, King Bradders. Maybe in the new year I ‘ll accept the office. But what happens when you disagree with one of my policies? Will it be straight to the gallows?

      • As Prime Minister you will have the sort of power given to “Teflon Tony” when he was in power, whatever you decree will have my full support, I’ll look forward to a few hanging’s then, see you in Chambers in the new year.

        BTW I’ve spoken to Fat Tony the new foreign secretary and in the new year he say’s he’ll have a list of mineral rich poorly armed countries that we can bomb the shite out of plunder their natural wealth then return home handing the place back to militia backed thugs to run amok, sound familiar?
