Walk the Plank’s illuminated Art Car Parades – full of mechanical mischief – will take over Manchester’s streets This Thursday 26th and in Edinburgh this Saturday the 28th November. Ben Wilson was one of three artists to be awarded commissioning money to create a mobile work of art, which will join the existing troupe of vehicles. ARTIKCAR is inspired by a child’s wooden toy car. The Pedal Powered vehicle is made from steel tubing, it steers by leaning and uses an innovative technology to illuminate the car. If you’re near by please come and see the parades: Illuminated Art Car Parade, Manchester City Centre, Thursday 26th November, cars on display from 3pm, parade from 6.30pm.

Man I wish we had cool stuff like this going on round these parts!

Cardboard.

Chris Gilmour. A life size bicycle made entirely out of cardboard and glue. Incredible.

The work of Chris Gilmour provokes surprise and amazement beyond what could appear to be a mere process of reproduction. In returning to the value of making and strongly emphasising it, these works reveal a process of understanding that lets us see everyday reality with new awareness and appreciation. This practice avoids a withdrawal into the limbo of craft, and implies an intimate and profound quest towards the reason of things.

Profile Glenn Anderson

December 6, 2008

This is Glenn Anderson, one of the sickest artists I have ever seen. I managed to get him to hold tight for a moment today while I snapped a pic of him and his trusty steed, his Specialized Langster 06 which he fondly likes to call ‘Purple Haze’.

A few words on Glenn’s recent involvement in Secret Wars, a Birmingham based ‘graffiti tournament’ from Tessa Burwood from the BBC website.

Glenn Anderson has been described as “the most modest and elusive of artists”. He has filled blank walls in Vietnamese bars, completed large scale commissions for corporate clients, and recently held a successful solo exhibition in his home city. His unusual approach to Secret Wars confused the crowds from the outset- he began drawing before battle officially commenced, and finished only ten minutes in, having written in oversize curlicues a message deliberately hard to read. It may not have won him a place in the next round, but it did send out a message- that art should be judged for itself, not surrounded by distracting performance.
