Prints and Biscs and Bellyaches

I haven't written this blog post yet but it's about buying prints about biscuits and protesting in time for Christmas,. Do remind me to get on with it.

Grrrr! in LA, Man

Grrrr! has landed a protest at Art Basil LA 2016!! We're shouting about stuff in our small and bijouz gallery space at John Kilduff's amazingering ART BASIL LA 2016 backyard in Van Nuys, LA, California, US actual A.

Drop in! Don't step on us though! Dec 1-4 i.e. TWO DAYS LEFT – Open 11am-5pm LA time. Man.
Love from Grrrrr! X
Thanks to Elizabeth Withstandley and Karrie Ross for pics, and setting up. X

Grrrr! in Wakefield!

Grrrr! has a display at the Wakefield Arthouse part of the Artwalk 2016, which is running for a couple more weeks. It's called "Protest" and it's got a lot of biscuits and shouty artworks in it. Click here for the Arthouse publicity thingy.

The aim of this exhibition, of course, is to stop the arseholes taking over the world. Am hoping this will actually work.

Some of the biscuits we painted on the opening night....

Thanks to Colin Lindley for making the perspex biscuit stands!

New Trump Protest Biscuits!

Or "cookies", as they say in the US.

Look, I don't know any more than the so-called "experts" [© everyone] in this post-truth political metasphere as to whether president elect Donald Trump will be as insanely awful as everyone thinks he might. Yeah, of course he will, but I am just hoping he won't. He may get run over by a cement mixer tomorrow and everything will be OK... but he's a bit of a knob (to say the least) and so he inspires a half dozen Protest biscuits. There ends my extremely minor reflection on the so-called US presidential election.

The biscuits, I'd say, are not wholly Trump-based. They are more a crude reflection of everything being a bit mental in 2016.

Fuckin' Hell; We're All Doomed 2016

American Flag [a bit broken]; Oh Dear

Bastard Trump; The State of America

PS A Grrrr! display is going to be at the Arthouse Wakefield on the 30 November for a short while, plus a biscuit-painting/banner making PROTEST sesh is on that evening... More details here.

A Couple of New Resin Art Biscuits

Just an experiment... I did a couple of Bowie biscuits and cast them in resin, a Low and an Aladdin Sane. Looking very much like the outsider art that they are, curious and alone. Rather strange and almost mystical.

"Low" - NOW SOLD

"Aladdin Sane"

There's also this "Love biscuit"... for those of us not entirely crushed by reality.

Biscuits in resin measure 5x5 cm height and width and are about 2 cm deep. If you would like a specific one please use the PayPal button below or contact raw art.
There are also some protest biscuits at raw art here.

Please note: "Low" is now sold.


Protest Biscuits - Gary Lineker and Fuck Yeah!

I don't think this needs explaining. Two new resin biscuits "Gary Lineker" and "Fuck Yeah!"


Custard Cream biscuit in clear resin. 5 x 5 x 2 cm approx. £20 for one, £35 for both, inc UK P&P.

UPDATE: both now sold

Folk Art Protest Biscuits - Now in Resin

As you may already know, Raw Art has spent the past two weeks pouring resin over the EU protest biscuits, including the rock n roll biscuit, to see if we could finally mummify the artworks, or whether the whole process would destroy them. In addition, the rock n roll biscuit is about two years old - and shows no signs of disintegration - so maybe this is due to industrial amounts of preservative. Or the fact that it is a magical biscuit which defies nature.
Probably the latter.

Now a few more are ready – cast in resin – to flee the so-called nest and go out into the wider world. But watch out, this is slightly involved. I was not certain there were pictures of all of the biscuits, so as a result there are now too many - but this is just to show as many as possible.
There is a list below. Please, if you buy a biscuit, request which one. This is very important. I can paint and cast another edition for you if one has sold out, if you are happy with that, or do choose another. You can use the contact page as the paypal notes thing I tried to do doesn't seem to work. I am keeping the original Rock N Roll biscuit.

Update - some of the originals have sold so please check list below or you can request a copy of a particular slogan/design

NEW IN! 2 x NHS!!

Or... another design, made to order - your choice of words or it could be ornamental [we put the "mental" in ornamental] etc.

I have deliberated over the price and they are £20 each including P&P. It may sound like a lot, but it isn't. They all took hours to paint, to dry, then to put in the resin (which costs loads). I didn't want to make them too expensive, as that's not the point. Yes. Or rather no.

I will be paintin' n dunkin' some new biscuits in the next few weeks. And for those that came and saw them at the Grrrr! shop - hey! Thanks for dropping by.

I have also found out, when prompted by the loyal Raw Art customer base, that the biscuits use sustainable palm oil.

Verse Chorus Verse Chorus Song Print

"Call Temperton..."

UPDATE – 6th October 2016 – RIP Rod Temperton whose death was announced 5 October 2016.
In addition to Thriller, British songwriter Temperton wrote tons of hits. Actual worldwide hits. Off The Wall and Rock With You, Boogie Nights and masses more. There's a good Spotify playlist here (compiled by Pete Paphides) which includes a handful of his bloody amazing disco greats. Makes me want to go out on a Saturday – velvet shoes, lycra leggings, vodka milkshake – and get on the dancefloor. 
"'Cause we're the party people night and day
Livin' crazy that's the only way."
Anyway, that's another song. Here's the Thriller song structure print...

Hey. And hello. Wotcha. Welcome to Raw Art, this blog post in particular. This thing.
And welcome to the latest thing – the all-new Raw Art Song Structure print. As seen [above] at the Grrrr! shop in July. Wooh - it's the structure of a song. Could be any song. Or could it. Are all songs the same?
It's the song structure of Thriller by Michael Jackson - well, sung by Michael Jackson and *danced* by him. Written by Rod Tempterton.

I think Michael Jackson is the time I realised there was a thing called famous.
("Michael Jackson". Like it's a time – "what time is it?" "Michael Jackson". Anyway.)
Not like "person on tv opens church fête" famous. But global, life-shattering, unenviable famous. I was a kid, and the other famous people up 'til then - Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, John Lennon - they were all dead. But Michael Jackson was alive and famous. I think he was on one side of a Smash Hits poster, with Boy George on the other. It was at this point that I realised that Boy George was famous too. And alive. And my world did not turn upside down quite, but my eyes were open.
As said, I was not very old at the time. I am older now. And I'm selling this print.
Limited edition of ten. Digital print on Hahnemuhle paper, A3. I will sign it and blah blah. Any other questions – if sensible – use the contact page.


28 September 2016. This is the unofficial Week One of the Raw Art Christmas.
