Stuckism is an art movement founded by 12 artists in London and Kent, England in 1999. Their aim was to advance new figurative painting in opposition to the “conceptual” art. By 2012 the group had grown to an international art movement with over 200 groups in 50 countries.
Ella Guru writes:
"I replaced the wand in the magician’s hand with a whip because my model, a real magician named Paul Nathan of San Francisco, is an expert at whip-cracking. He can pull a playing card out of your mouth with the crack of a bullwhip 10 meters away. And he likes to play with fire. "
"The Hermit’ Major Arcana is about seeking the truth,
so I have chosen Rupert Murdoch as my study because
he represents the antithesis of someone interested in the truth.
His Media Corporation has a history of manipulating the truth to suit
commercial purposes and maximize profits. "
