What would you swap for a Paul Insect limited edition print?

Avant Arte has created a special edition of 8 prints that they are offering to the people with the best and the weirdest submissions of what they would swap for one of Insect’s works.

From a flight to Glasgow and dog’s baby teeth to fresh kidney stones the submissions so far have been weird and wonderful on their Avant Instagram, Discord, Forum and Twitter channels.

The Swap Shop submissions are open until September 2nd and the competition is judged by Insect himself. All winners will be contacted on September 4th.  Happy Swapping.

About the artist

Paul Insect is a UK contemporary artist, who is most famous for his 2007 solo show Bullion exhibition at London’s Art gallery, Lazarides Gallery. Damien Hirst is reported to be a fan of Insect, having purchased the show days before it opened. Insect, who also goes by the name of PINS, worked alongside artist Banksy at the Cans Festival, the Santa’s Ghetto project in Bethlehem, and on the separation wall in Palestine.

Insect is well known for his collective named ‘insect’ which started in 1996 and disbanded in 2005. Insect held an exhibition at a disused sex shop in London’s Kings Cross area in 2008 in partnership with Lazarides Gallery. This contained 12 bronze skulls with colour-enamelled bunny ears.

Insect created the artwork for San Francisco-based hip hop producer DJ Shadow’s 2006 The Outsider album.
