Artstalker - Martin Bell
by stalker zine
We love Melbourne artist Martin Bell. Working and jerking multiple mediums from photography to collage to illustration, this lord of creativity makes images that are, to be blunt, frothworthy.
Although a lot of it reminds me of an alt. skate magazine (naked women and funky symbols) I wouldn't half mind bunging one of these bad boys on my wall.
His latest stuff is a book published "My Birthday Party" It documents his weird and wonderful life (the guy once transformed his house/living space into a massive art installation full of toys and other nick nacks - see above) It's part diary, part coffee table book and full of collages that'll make your third grade teacher cream her jeans.
Get in, around and all over it - it's a coffee table book so good you'll make EVERYONE use a coaster.
