I am driven to continue making these paintings to campaign for changes to be made, we need more social housing, the government's hefty housing benefit bill could be put to better use and cut down by creating affordable homes for people on average incomes. This would avoid housing benefit payments going to private landlords, and instead rental payments would go back in to cover the cost of creating the social housing. It's also worth noting that many people who claim housing benefit are actually in work, but the salaries they earn are just not high enough to cover the rising cost of rent. There is an interesting article on insidehousing.co.uk which states that over the last couple of years, 90 percent of new claims for help with housing costs are made by people in work.
These issues need to be addressed, and some sort of regulation brought in.
The paintings are inspired by real adverts in estate agent windows, the titles are taken from the language these agents use to describe what they are offering.
Twinkle Troughton will also be exhibiting paintings, and together we will also be running The Bank of Tinsel &Twinkle at the opening night, we have some new banker uniforms for the event! Please come and share your thoughts with us on the global economy on our bank notes.
Big Deal No. 5 is curated by Vanya Balogh and Cedric Christie, read more about it in the Huffington Post here.
The exhibition is supported by Geoffrey Leong, he comments:
"Supporting Arts is an important part of bringing incredible works to be evaluated and engaged with by the public, giving them the opportunity to review art in a different way. This multi media feast is curated by two renowned international artists Vanya Balogh & Cedric Christie through their continuous presence in various studios. In this case expect the unexpected, from organised chaos to uniform structure and much more. I believe this is both original and inspiring show which brings an element of fun to those who view it. There really is nothing like this in the world of arts that we see today, the engaging of artists and the public in perfect harmony."
