Michael St.Mark 2018
Tesco in-store Costa coffee lounge scene, January 2018; the ageing Middle England couples’ dreams of riches and quality of life through share investments and steadfast support of the nation-wrecking Tories still evident through habitual perusal of the right-wing tabloid press.
Real life archetypes of the blinded millions who kept the Thatcher govt. in power throughout the 1980s, basically on the promise of “cheaper bread”.
” Well folks, after over 12 years we’ve almost arrived at the millenium milestone of photo-oriented artorks focussed on resuscitating and revitalizing the Dada art movement along lines originally intended by its founding father, Hugo Ball….
” Art, for us, is not an end in itself, but rather it is an opportunity for true perception and criticism of the times in which we live “
Achievements to date include pointing and trending art as relevant to current times by reflecting social issues and street reality of life in the UK today and as amazingly confirmed and admitted in 2017 by Maria Balshaw as new director of Tate Modern.
After 10 years of annual campaigning, unsupported by other artists or institutions; succeeding in pressuring/shaming Tate directors into lifting the blatantly ageist Turner Prize under-50 age limit for entrants.
Wolff Olins’ London 2012 Olympic brand logo and Wilkinson Eyre architects’ basketball arena design on the Olympic Park, plagiarised both in form and concept artist Michael St.Mark’s pre-existing Infinitude II bas-relief work.
Damien Hirst’s entire recent ” Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable ” project copied both concept and title from London Dada’s 2008 photo artwork ” Logfish- an unbelievable Treasure from the Deep ”
Procured the first full-length genuine photograph of graffiti legend Banksy
