 **This is not another story** 2005 Pavement art by Richard Deacon

100 resin bricks set in the pavement outside the Ikon gallery Brindley Place Birmingham. Plastic Fragments collected from Beahces all round the UK then set in resin into the pavement. 

“”Fixed into the pavement, the plastic has been reinserted back into the city, underfoot and unnoticed blurring the line between Art and everyday Life”“

Wifredo Lam’s art incorporated the styles he had encountered in Europe with the Afro-Cuban iconography of his childhood.

Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.

- Salvador Dali (via tiedyeskin)

‎”I detest my own past and that of others. I detest resignation, patience, professional heroism and all those nice, obligatory sentiments. I also detest the decorative arts, folklore, publicity, the voice of speakers, aerodynamics, boy scouts, the smell of gasoline, topical matters and drunkards. I love subversive humour, freckles, knees, the long hair of women, the laugh of young children at liberty, a young girl running in the street. I wish for real love, the impossible and the utopian. I fear knowledge of my exact limits.” 
René Magritte
