Helper gets a makeover... 

Supertouch's own TIM BISKUP unleashed his attack on the art world high and low last week when his show of new paintings "The Artist In You" opened at the JONATHAN LEVINE GALLERY. Packing in a crowd of admirers, gawkers, and stone throwers like lemmings in a tin, Mr Biskup revealed a new series of heavily cubist-inspired works reflecting his new, minimal aesthetic direction and released a new book of ponderings/vitriolic rants on the state of the art world that gave the show its name. Love it or hate it, Mr Biskup's exhibition was one of the most thought-provoking bodies of work to hit the so-called alternative art world in some time and one glance at the accompanying writings (which are available as a free PDF download HERE) will have you pondering your own artistic inadequacies and cursing the hypocrisy of the fine art world simultaneously. HAVE A LOOK:
