Archibald Realities!!!!

On Friday 6th of January, World New Australia and Channel Seven's evening news used the above image as their headline for a story on the huge amounts of Archibald entries. The image is not the finished work but this post is a montage to complete the image. to read the article click here called their headline "Archibald Pantsdown" after the subject I painted who is most famous for his 1996 project Pauline Pantsdown, a satirical dance song with chopped up media recordings of Australian politician Pauline Hanson - famous for her xenophobic policy and famous for not knowing what xenophobic meant ("PLEASE EXPLAIN")

PAULINE PANTSDOWN AkA Simon Hunt is currently a lecturer in Sound Design at the College of Fine Arts in Sydney and has an exhaustive knowledge of good music.

Thanks Simon and hopefully I'll see you at the Archies.
