Great Art Book: Being Alex Diamond

When I visited Hamburg some days ago, I got a copy of the “Being Alex Diamond” art book by Jörg from the Heliumcowboys Art Space – Thank you for that!

After I wrote that post about Alex Diamond’s Demon Circus exhibition in Barcelona, I’m a big fan of the style and the intentions behind the artworks:

The Alex Diamond project clearly calls attention to the dangers of cultural myths and the process of constructing aesthetic consensus and value, it also makes a tender attack on the vacancy of celebrity culture and the market’s role in determining so-called quality. (Harlan B. Levey)

I love Diamond’s genderless, ageless and nation-less characters and considered myself for that reason to be tattooed with one of his/ her drawings…For more info about Alex, visit alexdiamond.de.

Here are some insights from the Being Alex Diamond art book. You could get your issue, if you are interested in this contemporary art!
