Ian Fleming's Mar-Tinny on a Gallery Wall
This animation has been created from one of my Acrylic paintings called ‘Ian Fleming’s Mar-Tinny’
Ian Fleming’s Mar-Tinny revolves at a contemplative speed on a museum wall, changing it’s aesthetic before it revolves back to its desired state.

‘Ian Fleming’s Mar-Tinny’ – I’m purposefully not sharing the identities of those that shared their sometimes very personal stories with me; and so, ‘Ian Fleming’ – not the real name – would often turn to alcohol as a way to navigate the world when anxiety kicks in.
Vodka is often used as it is something that can’t usually be smelled on the breath and the person that confided this story to me told me they couldn’t face the world without a moderate dose of cocktails.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born in England, Melbourne-based SMART | Pop Artist migrated to Australia in 2005 where he now works as a modern pop artist exploring the theme of ‘the ordinary and everyday’
His work continuously sells for thousands of dollars and he is constantly compared with both Andy Warhol and Wayne Thiebaud; but this is not something he agrees to, preferring to be labelled more as Anti-Warhol rather than Andy Warhol
“As an artist with physical paintings, I am going to move all my work onto block-chain in the short-term and streamline my online presence by removing almost all of my accounts with online galleries except for one or two
“I believe that selling on blockchain is the way forward and this is especially so when someone sees my work on my insta page but then buys the piece via an online gallery; the gallery gets to keep up to 50% in commission for doing no work and this, as a practice, needs to end.”
