Biutifool Beastard at the Remixed Media Festival in november 2012 #remixedmediafestival
The RE/Mixed Media Festival is a celebration of collaborative art-making and creative appropriation. It’s the artists’ contribution to the ongoing conversation about remixing, mashups, copyright law, fair use, and the freedom of artists to access their culture in order to add to and build upon it.
Featuring: Performances, panel discussions, hip-hop, sampling, beat-box, film & video, fashion, food, DJs, technology, interactive installations, painting, sculpture, software, hacking, and much more!
Biutifool Beastard is a Bmx pirate and a visual mash up artist restyling and remixing the works of the Great Masters of history of art. He makes his works slicing ʺmasteryʺ paintings using his left hooked hand and then re-arranging his favourite bits all together. Doing so, he aims to create new works with new bizarre (off the wall) but in topic storylines with a freaky fancy look and a more catching visual ʺlanguageʺ … remix to create new stories based on and inspired by old stories, to extrapolate the subjects of the paintings from their original past contexts and to throw them into new comical, grottesque, eccentric contemporary scenarios.
