Any sentence containing the words, cartoon, urban or funky.

7 Which artists would you most like to rip off, sorry, I mean appropriate as a critique of originality and authorship?

None, they’re all overrated.

8 Do you care what your art costs? State your reasons!

Yes and no. I fluctuate between thinking it should be really expensive so I can buy a yacht an AK47 and a Porsche,

and giving it away because money pisses me off.

A pint of Guinness would be nice.

13 If Moma and the Tate and the Pompidou wanted to acquire one of your works each, which would you want them to have?

I did a drawing about the Metropolitan Police “curating” the Richard Prince show in Tate Modern so maybe Moma could have that one.

The Tate and the Pompidou can have what they like, I’m not fussy.

Shows in Rome over summer and Tokyo next year.
