Modern Art in Biggleswade
Biggleswade's Budding Street Art Scene
March 19th 2003
sooner had I published my first review "Chopper is King Scrawler",
than this absolutely captivating piece appeared virtually on my own doorstep!
Rendered in trendy metallic spray paint upon bare tarmac, the message strikes
deep into the viewer's heart. The author apparently challenges us for capital which he or she believes
is owed, although whether it is for goods or services, is not mentioned.
Instantly the reader is forced to consider the validity of this statement. Whose
Mum? How much money? Do they mean me? A hurricane of confusion and emotion
follow as self-doubt and financial concerns collide. I couldn't help myself
glancing over my shoulder, half-expecting to catch the artist concealed in a
nearby bush, or peering around a nearby corner. But of course, there was no-one
there. It was all part of the illusion created by this piece, this masterpiece -
"Your Mum Owes Me Money".
