Pastiche, Parody and Piracy- Salvador's Deli



The third and final cartoon of mine on show at the Pastiche, Parody and Piracy exhibition

The title for this exhibition was quoted from the government IPO copyright law forthcoming exception for parody, satire and pastiche. If this law is finally passed by the government, the act of subverting and appropriating elements of popular culture will be protected from large corporate enterprises that often seek to silence it through legal action and claims of ‘copyright infringement.’ We believe this is crucial for the future of appropriative art and satire, and although the law has been delayed, we are putting on this exhibition to celebrate artists, satirists and cartoonists who are paving the way.


Fasten your seltbelts, its going to be a bumpy ride.

Pastiche, Parody and Piracy- Chez Duchamp



Another cartoon from the Pastiche, Parody and Piracy exhibition.

Appropriation has long been a tool used in art, and has always been divisive in its understanding and acceptance. The pieces in this exhibition play with other people’s ideas and pre-existing works to showcase a selection of contemporary appropriation in art that is often mischievous, somewhat humorous, and often unsettling. It plays with what the viewer might be comfortable with and questions ideas of authorship and originality.

The Grapes Of Math


Today The Grapes Of Math by Alex Bellos is published in the USA by Simon & Schuster. Here's one of the illustrations by The Surreal McCoy.
“Bellos’s book is sprinkled with similarly surprising revelations about familiar mathematical objects ... Bellos has a fantastic knack of making you feel as if you’re sharing a room with these mathematical explorers” – New Scientist
"Another sparkling romp through the world of numbers, with the inimitable Alex Bellos as your friendly, informed, and crystal-clear guide. A brilliant successor to Here's Looking at Euclid."
– Ian Stewart, Professor of Mathematics, University of Warwick, and author of Visions of Infinity
