Tumblr Exlusive: Crayola Bullets by David Turner

About the work:
"Crayola Bullets are a new work by David Turner. They are cast wax crayon in the shape of an AK 47 round (7.62×39mm ammunition). The bullet is used by military, civilian, militia and terrorist organisations worldwide. Reasoning behind the work relates to the proliferation of child soldiers, the loss of innocence and the ‘create and destroy’ developmental stage of children. The work can be shown as an installation or presented as a box set or ‘magazine’ of bullets.”

About the Artist: 
“David Turner is a Belfast based artist who creates autobiographical work through toy mediums that reflect conflict, terrorism, and evoke critical commentary on present day violence and war. Growing up in turbulent Belfast, Turner was surrounded by violence and conflict. These events have had a direct influence on his life and artwork, causing him to revisit his adolescence and recreate these memories with childhood mediums such as LEGOS, Hamma Beads, and Plasticine.

Turner’s artwork presents a platform that is both a direct reflection of his childhood and the conflict he experienced, as well as giving a voice to
current atrocities, be they children of war, child soldiers, or children who have lost their lives or a loved one to gun violence. His work materializes in many forms, from two-dimensional depictions to fully functioning firearms, which break down contentions of representation and offer new and exploratory directions for investigating themes of conflict, war, self, and popular culture.”

The Uncomfortable Katerina Kamprani

"The Uncomfortable started as a twisted sadistic design project. It messed up it’s creator’s head [and the heads of people she knows]. It exists in sketches and 3d visualizations and has no meaningful purpose. It’s a parasite in the world of materialism and design."
