VIEW IN MY ROOM
Self portrait of a kinky old Goth. I saw a portrait of Tommy Cooper on stage in a friends house many years ago and its meloncholy struck a chord which i didn't forget, i wanted to try and emulate that... My alter ego, a character I developed when I opened a hire dungeon in Brighton and started to explore my sexuality at fetish clubs in London... A mask for my social anxiety and shyness. 'Give a man a mask and he becomes his true self.' Joker. 'Accept everything, except nothing' UsinU.

What is it every artist is trying to achieve? Recognition? Perfection? Fame? Wealth?... Or are they trying to convey something of themselves? To understand the inner workings of what it is to be a human and how that manifests into the people and the world around them? What shall I paint? Do I try to convey a message? Symbolism? Allegory? A legend? A myth? A story? All questions every artist since the cave has been grappling with and no doubt will continue to do so ad infinitum. My ancestors painted religion, I consider myself to be currently painting that which has replaced it in the age of nihilism, narcissism, identity & sexuality. So I'm trying to paint something that challenges the viewer, that dances on the edge of socially and culturally acceptable. Dares the observer to step outside of convention, to hang one of my paintings is going to require something other than just money, something more important than money... you won't see one of my paintings in the high street gallery! Buy art because you... ...LOVE IT! Guy. p.s. I have a free signed copy of my full colour art book, which is available on Amazon, if you are the first to send me an email via my 'Contacts' page on website, with 'USINU' as subject I will post you that book as a prize. Thank you for reading this. (I will post note here once over) www.GuyUsinUArtist.co.uk
