Cultural Influences on Art

I remember an artist criticizing and dismissing another artist for using something in his work that was from another culture because he wasn't from that culture (his parents were). I found that not only to be incredibly narrow minded, it ignored how everything can influence what we create.

Tea, Heritage (Vampire Rabbit of Newcastle, family nickname spuggy, Blaydon Races-song, magpies ) the love of the Gothic and Romanesque architecture (such as Durham Cathedral) which explains the shape of many of my paintings/assemblages, Graffiti,

Michael Jackson Punjabi Style
