Art by Offenders

London's Southbank Centre is scraping the bottom of the barrel for art exhibitions. Last week the Hayward Gallery opened Someday All the Adults Will Die! Punk Graphics 1971-1984 (CLICK) which I decided wasn't worth posting on an arts blog. Today its Spirit Level opened an exhibition with another catchy title: Art by Offenders, Secure Patients and Detainees (CLICK). This free exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of the Koestler Trust. All the artists are anonymous. CLICK for a BBC slide show. This picture caught my eye. It appears to be a mixture of montage and painting. If it is all painting, the artist is brilliant.
