Just put the gangster in the Art Bin

Just put the ‘Gangster’ in the skip and had a chat with Michael Landy, odd Saturday.

The idea of the Gangster came up when I wanted to create a piece to accompany my ‘Marvel Girl’:

Originally, I decided to take inspiration from pictures of 1940-50’s gangsters, and was planning a contrasting picture in purple and orange. However the outcome started developing its own personality and I just could not walk around my flat without feeling observed!

Landy’s exhibition was the ideal place to take my Gangster to, despite having to put the picture in a giant skip it felt more like giving it a home rather than disposing of it:
