Two Art Brut Comic Strips By Luke Haines

These two original comic strips were commissioned by Eddie Argos and Art Brut for an i-tunes app for 'Art Brut's Greatest Hits.'

 The first one 'Good Weekend' (2xA4 ink on Bristol board, unframed) features a confused Sunn O))) contemplating a future with brand new member Eddie Argos; Imagine this collaboration instead of t' O)))'s somewhat predictable pairing with reclusive (but not really) high singing man Scott Walker. Imagine.

The second comic strip 'Modern Art' (1xA3 ink on Bristol board, unframed) features our (your) hero Eddie contemplating Modern Art, just like he does in the famous Art Brut song of the same name. Is there a connection to Tony Hancock's masterpiece 'The Rebel' in these black n white lines? There is.

Both comic strips are signed by the artist Luke Haines.

'King Elton John and his partner David Futures' Acrylic on Canvas 40cm x 30. Original painting by Luke Haines.

Friends! (We are still friends I hope) Adjust your eye peepers. Adjust your brain box. Adjust your reality (adjust REALITY). This thing blazing colours (colors) into your head is an actually painting of King Elton John and his Partner David Futures. The future - that is the theme of this work of 'art'. Is it art? Is it beyond 'art?' Is it beneath 'art?' What does it mean? Why is King Elton John laughing? Is it because he has hidden the baby's eyes? And why is David Futures smiling so? Is it because he knows where King Elton John has hidden the baby's little eyes? Questions. Art is here to throw up questions, and let's be frank - this painting really does pose a fuck of a lot of questions.
