It’s really amazing when a tiny idea in your brain becomes something you can actually hold and stare at. Here are some examples of times when that happened.
I Want To Eat Crisps With You, Dave Buonaguidi
Dave Buonaguidi is an artist, based in Hackney, London, who specialises in creating unusual and original hand-printed screen prints.
I met Dave at the Affordable Art Fair in 2018 and immediately fell in love with his style. Good words written, fun moments captured and of course, fun glitter. Very me.
I bought a ‘Party Like It’s 1999’ print and got to put the glitter on myself. Dave had an ‘I Want To Eat Biscuits With You’ print for sale and I said ‘Dave, everyone knows that crisps are far more superior than biscuits’ and he said ‘Fuck! I love crisps!’ and I said ‘And I do! I’m obsessed’ and he said ‘Me too!’ and I said ‘Can we do an ‘I Want To Eat Crisps With You’ one?’ and he said ‘Yeah!’
So 3 years later, the I WANT TO EAT CRISPS WITH YOU prints came to be: in Cheese + Onion, Prawn Cocktail, Salt + Vinegar and Ready Salted editions.
They were at The Other Art Fair in Kings Cross in July 2021, and on sale at realhackneydave.com.
