British fine art photographer David Stewart’s new work uses the advertising agency as his subject and theme put a massive smile on my face. Clever, satirical, witty and think of Mad Men bought right up to date 2018. I myself working in an advertising agency and having trained as a fine artist find David’s new body of work ‘Paid Content’ definitely striking a chord.
On Saturday 15.10.2011 I went to see the Hokusai Retrospective at the Martin-Gropius-Baus in Berlin. The exhibition of Hokusai took me back some years to my student days when I studied Fine Art Printmaking at Anglia Ruskin University and Royal College of Art. Katsushika Hokusai was masterful Japanese painter and printmaker specialising in the intricate time consuming skill and art form of woodcuts. The print below is Red Fuji from Hokusai's series, 'Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji'.
