SALFORD ARTIST MATT CARROLL DEPICTS ‘PIG’ TRUMP IN NEW WORK
 

Star date: 29th July 2018

DONALD TRUMP DONE 'PIG' STYLE FOR SALFORD EXHIBITION

Top Salford artist Matt Carroll, known as part of the Central Station team that creatively invented the 'Madchester' style for Happy Mondays, Black Grape et al, has produced a new work depicting Donald Trump, pig style.

The painting, plus another work by Matt and sister Maria, called The Isolation of a Pencil Sharpener in a Desert of Discontent, is currently being exhibited at Salford Museum and Art Gallery as part of the Salford Summer Show.

The inner and outer pig of US President Donald Trump has been depicted to perfection in a new work by ace Little Hulton artist, Matt Carroll, and is currently being exhibited at the Salford Summer Show at Salford Museum and Art Gallery.

Matt always has his finger on the pulse of the zeitgeist, shooting to fame as part of the Central Station team that creatively defined the fluorescent style of 'Madchester', with album covers for the likes of Happy Mondays, Black Grape and James, and graphics that lived on t-shirts and flyers throughout the world.

Later, he wazzed Friedrich Engels up for the 21st Century in a commission for the print issue of the Salford Star*, and, last year, Matt, together with sister Maria, exhibited their Ups and Downs show at Salford Museum and Art Gallery which captured the inner and outer mayhem going off in the city of late.** The Trump painting continues this style...

"Originally it was going to be just a complete minimal abstract painting made up of three blocks of colour to represent Trump" Matt tells the Salford Star "But in the end I decided to give it the two reference points of the Pig eye and the Pig mouth to make it more recognisably Trump..."

Quite.

Meanwhile, Matt and Maria also have another painting in the Salford Summer Show, entitled The Isolation of a Pencil Sharpener in a Desert of Discontent, which kind of says it all.

The Salford Summer Show: The Open [1] is part of the Salford Royal Academy Takeover at Salford Museum and Art Gallery, and runs until November.


The Trump painting is for sale at £2,500, while The Isolation of a Pencil Sharpener in a Desert of Discontent is priced at £600.

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
