Everyone wants to be an artist. A new book about to be published by Phaidon entitled Wild Art aims to prove that there are a lot of things that can be called art that are far, far, far outside what you’d see in a gallery. Things like ice and sand sculptures, fantasy architecture, street interventions, animal pictures (see above), odd-as-hell body art, art cars.
This is a book that brings together the viral horrors on the internet and re-contextualises them. The book is being launched with a panel discussion (chaired by yours truly) at the ICA with Museum of Everything’s James Brett, leftfield gallerist Steve Lazarides and the authors of the book. Be warned: these images are addictive viewing.
