  • Duchamp, Double Sided Tape And Fine Art
    Now specialising in industrial themed art, I still use doubled sided tape, but of the more hardcore type than was given to primary school children back in the seventies. The applications for specialised tape are limitless. If you can recall the Polyfilla adverts, probably from the same era, the strength of industrial adhesives are enough to keep a poor bloke in a boiler suit stuck to the underside of a plank while sharks swim beneath him.

These early incarnations of the railway system were known as Wagonways; it wasn't until the late 1700s
  • Top London Art Gallery Experiences

With somewhere in the region of 400 galleries to choose from to consume some fine art, it can be a tough choice for the art lover, and sometimes all you need do is put on a pair of comfy shoes and go in search of a London art gallery that meets your expectations.
