About the artwork
A limited edition screen printed sweater by British artist Scott King. The artist was inspired to produce this work after Joe Scotland, Director of Studio Voltaire, told him of an incident where a passer–by shouted ‘STUPID ART CUNT' across the street at him whilst he was visiting Firstsite gallery in Colchester a few of years ago.
