gavinturkbook

Graphic Design course leader, Noel Douglas, has an essay called Revolt in a new book by Gavin Turk called This is Not A Book About Gavin Turk. His essay sits alongside a number of others by artists and writers like Damien Hirst, Jon Savage, Fiona Banner and Hari Kunzru.

About the book:

Gavin Turk — one of the group of artists known in the British media as YBAs — might seem a familiar figure to us, but how many of us really know or understand what we are looking at when we see a piece of his work? A diverse mix of contributors were invited to discuss his recurring motifs — from eggs to trash, via tramps and punk. Each short essay is accompanied by illustrations; signposting shows how they interconnect and overlap along the way.
