Shea Kirk is an artist making heaps of artworks including that video I posted below. The video is of Shea Kirk tattooing a lemon writing “Sorry Mum”. The drawing I used for the head piece is a drawing Shea Kirk did. It’s of a girl holding a frog that is dropping coins and flesh. Just so you know, in Shea Kirk’s drawings he normally hides this little face. It’s a rectangle that goes up and then two circles as eyes then a line as a mouth, then little lines going across the mouth and there is an exclamation mark above it! Find him!! Can I tell you why the coins are gold? It’s because he put gold leaf on it and the original artwork didn’t have gold leaf on it. They’re for sale.
Shea Kirk made this very odd pinhole camera. It’s odd because he used a piece of paper on it that had a man’s face and he put this triangle hole in his head. That is so you can lift another piece of paper up and take a photo. And it sort of looks like it’s what he is thinking. And pinhole camera Tania and pinhole camera Shea, well, if you read the post on Tania, you would know that she is the artist from that post. Now Shea, he is the same person that I am reviewing right now. It’s a selfie of him. The pinhole camera is made of #tape #film canisters #piece of plastic a #bolt #matchbox.
SUNSHINE, LOLLIPOPS + DEATH
Sunshine, Lollipops + Death is an exhibition that Shea Kirk was in. His artwork is a lolly slingshot. He used these things to make it #bicycle inner tube #candy #expanding foam #silicone a cut out from a #football a #stick #lead #lego blocks more #silicone and that’s it. Why did he use lead? It’s a poison metal, it can especially cause harm when devoured or swallowed or if you breathe in lead dust. But why did he use the lead? Because he was making, well, more like casting lead lego blocks. You’re meant to imagine like the slingshot shoots the lead lego blocks. But only imagine. You might have gone to this exhibition. Or maybe you haven’t? Well sorry but you can’t go anymore it happened before I started making this post. You probably saw the pictures above. One of them was boiling lollies, well, making lollies. Another of them was a close up of lead lego just after it had been cast. Another of the photos is the prototype of the slingshot, it’s the candy in the moulds. It’s a prototype because we didn’t use that one, there’s a pink little circle and if you saw another photo you would see that it’s more of a white slingshot. Another of the photos was a football with a rectangle hole cut in to it. It didn’t get popped because he didn’t cut the balloon thing in the inside of it. Two of the photos was the scene of him casting lead lego blocks. Four more of them were bits of the artwork, but one of them, I mean, one of the photos is the whole artwork. When I mentioned what was in the the artwork I forgot some stuff… a #car battery #potassium nitrate #hydrogen peroxide #acetone #aspirin #hexamine #citric acid #sodium bicarbonate #hydrochloric acid and that is all about Sunshine, Lollipops + Death!!!
The drawings are of Shea and of his friends. The video goes with the drawings. In the video is Shea and his friends with paint on their FACES and they’re printing by bashing their faces against paper. The paint comes off their faces and gets onto the paper. One of the prints that they made looks like Yoda from Star Wars.
Remember how I mentioned earlier that one of the print that they did looked like Yoda from Star Wars? You know how I just put in that picture? The one at the bottom on the far left is the one that looks like Yoda from Star Wars.
All these photos I just put in are of Shea making knives, well, k-nives. The process started like this, the knives used to be just files. Shea heated them up until they were not magnetic and then made it into a knife shape. It was while before they cooled down, they were very hot. In the process of heating it up he saved a lizard from getting melted up as well, getting it away from the fire and saved it. That was very nice of him to save that lizard. So the files started to get sanded and polished and sharpened. I think we should stop here on the process for now because there are no photos that have been taken of what happens next.
The broken plate is a very weird artwork. It is a smashed plate that has been glued back together and looks like it never got broken. Very weird.
The vomit pictures that are down the dark street are an ongoing series that Shea has been working on. It’s ongoing, so it’s not finished yet. It might even never be finished because of how ongoing it is. All the works in my opinion are spectacular! If you want, you can leave a comment on your favourite one, AND your favourite angle, and your favourite picture of it.
The volume battle! The volume battle is a fantastic artwork, well, another fantastic artwork. The artwork is a picture and there is a link which I will put down below to see the volume battle. Who is the loudest — a record player playing Dr Seuss or an organ playing dramatic music? Who will win? Check the link below!
The REAL volume battle
I call the photograph I just put up “Explorer Tania”. Remember how I put up a post about an artist named Tania? Well, that is the same artist! Tania is climbing up high! Where is she climbing?? Put what you think in the comments.
There are heaps of his photos on Shea’s Instagram. Check the link below for that.
