Marc Quinn - 'Identity' propaganda artist
Quinn's BLM protestor statue made good promotion for his work, stating it was only meant to be temporary. How did he have the nerve, and how did he get away with it?
Quinn is considered a superstar in the social justice art world: one of the YBA (young British artists of the 90's) contemporary with Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin, concerned with 'identity', which explains why the media treat him as a superstar 'godlike'. The fact that TV channels were there to film it being erected in the early hours, shows their 'worshipful following' with complicit political purpose to their promotion of the BLM movement, which is of very questionable origins.
Quinn works with placenta and faeces, transgender transformation. Who'd have guessed! He also made a rather self obsessed sculpture of his own head made in 9 pints of blood 'hyper realism'. Interview by Culture Whisper.
His Instagram shows involvement with gender identity and LGBTQIA. for those who think 'identity politics have gone too far, its artists like Quinn which are giving it 'god like' status, just as the 'arts' have been given by the media.
