HOODIES IN PORCELAIN…Britain’s chavs have been turned into porcelain figurines as part of an extraordinary new art collection.
The models, on sale for around 8000 pounds, include a family scoffing buckets of fast food and a hooded boy spraying graffiti on a wall.
In other scenes a boy wolfs down a burger and more ‘hoodies’ are shown causing havoc in a park.One piece entitled ‘Do it again, I didn’t press record’ even shows kids ‘happy slapping’ a helpless victim. Mr Barford uses antique porcelain models, bought from car-boot sales and charity shops, as a base for his collection. The original models are dismantled by the artist and given a dramatic facelift from the ‘idealistic’ images of childhood to a more humorous, modern image of youth.
This work is called: ‘Do it again, I didn’t press record’
