LEADER OF UNDERGROUND ARTO-POLITICAL TERRORIST MOVEMENT ART KIEDA, FORMER ACID HOUSE PROMOTER & PORN PRODUCER. THE STAR OF THE INSANE BUT TRUE STORY
“THE BANKSY JOB”
“I AM NOT – is 2 years in the making, it’s been on hold due to covid but now the show is ready to be unleashed. It’s a Valentine’s themed special event with a twist” says AK47 The Artist.
AK47 is the leader of Art Kieda – an underground movement of art terrorists.
Andy’s first controversial show “Bullets Straight from the Heart” at Maurice Einhardt Neu Gallery in Hackney in 2013.
Link has also curated shows under a different guise; Philip Ignatious Salacious Stein (P.I.S.S.) in East London circa 2010.
As a conceptualist & a provocateur, he had been executing stunts that were designed to unsettle the status quo of the modern art including ‘borrowing’ and returning works by Tracy Emin and Damian Hirst. Although most of them were opportunistic, others were intricate and well thought out. But really, the one of the biggest things he had done was to steal Banksy’s ‘The Drinker’ and then try and ransom it back to Banksy.
