Year of the Pigeon

February 2013 to February 2014 was the year of the Pigeon. I made lots of paintings of Pigeons all the same but different. One was sold at an auction in Leeds and several more have sold since. The paintings are meant to be a currency, an alternate monetary system. At the time of going to press one pigeon is worth thirty British pounds. They are made with ink, crayon and paint on A3 sized canvases from home bargains. Pictured below are four pigeons that are currently on sale at the Union Mash Up pop up gallery on Princes Avenue, Hull. Curated by Martin Lewsley.
