Ben Turnbull “I Don’t Like Mondays”

Share Tweet Email Reddit Flipboard WhatsApp Comments
I Don’t Like Mondays finds British artist Ben Turnbull moving away from the paint brush and exploring the potential of wood carving. Reclaimed wooden school desks are his canvas. On these (well, seven to be exact) he’s carved deadly weapons. There’s then a juxtaposition of school boy innocence with the worst of urban reality. The exhibition is on view at Eleven Fine Art in London until November 7, 2009. (via Wallpaper*).
