Scott King

Scott King, Brian, 2008

Scott King, a man probably best known for his TEMPORARY EYESORE comission erected next to the Tate Modern in 2008, is on the panel for a publication due out in November by Kunstverein München curators Stefan Kalmár (also the acting director for Artists Space) and Daniel Pies. When it comes to his work, even Walt Disney has to Marvel at the way he embraces graphic design via the obvious mathematical homonym. Working with pie charts, scattered bar graph's and Venn diagrams might seem a little clinical for those students scribbling on their desk in the back of maths, but he's also been drawing moustaches on photographs for at least 20 years longer than I have. The book should be a treat, proving true the contested idiom that "Everything new is necessary"
