Neo-Liberal attacks on education are escalating in many places around the world including Chile, the USA, Canada and Australia. Students and people in general are protesting against these attacks in large numbers in some of these places too. For more information click on the links:

(above photos) These were placed in Footscray, Melbourne. Thanks to the freely accessable street sculpture techniques of Mark Jenkins (USA), I’m keen to produce more of this type of work. I aim to be much more directly political with my work, than Jenkins, as I feel that he commented successfully upon the alienated individual under capitalism.
