Damien Hirst is famous for putting animals which are already dead into a chemical called formaldehyde. This chemical preserves the animal for posterity. But why a shark? www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk NGfL CYMRUGCaD Marcell Duchamps Here we see one of the art worlds most famous pictures, The

Mona Lisa, which has been destroyed by something as simple as a moustache and beard on her face. Graffiti perhaps? L.H.O.O.Q 1919 www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk NGfL CYMRUGCaD NEALE HOWELLS Howellss works are neither

portraits or landscapes, rather they are pictures of the attitudes of our society graffiti, slogans, the marks which we see on the walls in the streets of our valleys and cities. His work is much more inventive that what it appears to be at first. Click here to see examples of the

artists work www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk NGfL CYMRUGCaD Ray Johnston A famous star who destroyed his own life through drugs. During the Pop Art era, artists would often draw or adapt pictures of contemporary stars.

Elvis Presley 2 1955 www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk NGfL CYMRUGCaD Ray Johnston Here is a picture of a famous actor from the era which has been destroyed by various symbols.

James Dean 1958 www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk Roy Lichtenstein Whaam! 1963 Oil on Canvas http://www.flickr.com/photos/oddsock/100825567/ NGfL CYMRUGCaD Litchenstein uses paintings of tragic events such as war, fighting and divorce in American comic style. He uses strong and clear colours without any real detail. They are simple and effective images.

www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk NGfL CYMRUGCaD PICASSO http://www.flickr.com/photos/erprofe/4754078275/ Guernica 1937 www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk NGfL CYMRUGCaD It is said that experts have analysed this picture in detail.

Picasso painted this picture to represent the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s. It appears that the horse represents the people; the bull conveys the horrors of war, and the angular shape of the faces of the people and animals show the suffering. To add to this, the colours too are dreary. www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk NGfL CYMRUGCaD http://www.flickr.com/photos/centralasian/5978422149/sizes/o/in/photostream/ Rene Magritte

been destroyed to all intents and purposes, as in the previous piece, the fact that it is upside down means that it cant be used and consequently it is worthless and therefore destroyed. www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk NGfL CYMRUGCaD Click here to see this example of the
