Jeremy….

… It’s on it’s way!

My ( actually, it isn’t mine anymore ) 1989 Duell track pursuit is on it’s way to NYC. Jeremy, look after it and I hope you get as much enjoyment out of riding it as I did.

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.
