David Gill: Wit, irony and Barnaby Barford.

No Regrets, Old Man.
   Shit Daddy's going to kill me.

Come te no c'e nessuno
 Come on you lightweight, Down it!

I've seen today a photographer who I used to assist a couple of years ago at David Gill Galleries in London, which made me think of the artists and designers they used to represent. These are some pieces by Barnaby Barford. As you can see, Barford works with traditional ceramic figurines and transforms them to set a new narrative, a story. What I love about his work, that it is full of wit, irony and satire. My favorite components of any piece of art or design.. Pay attention to the titles of the works!
