“Always the Real Thing” (2018)
A 3D cast model artwork from a limited run
Signed, with hologram sticker on rear. Framed
In this‘Always the Real Thing’ sculpture, Imbue merges the two iconic silhouettes of the Virgin Mary and the shape of the glass Coca Cola bottle to comment on icons, consumerism, and surrounding
issues that arise in our society today.
The ‘Banksy of Brighton’, Imbue is known for his dope-smoking Pooh Bear prints and campaign to smuggle fake heroin and cocaine vending machines onto Brighton pier.
He creates 3D statement pieces often using iconic crosses, sometimes filled with pills, a symbol of science, to ask questions about our faith and mortality.
