WHY SHOULD WE PAY THOUSANDS TO AN EAST SUSSEX ARTIST


We now find out that Merrick Cockell's protege, the newly appointed Artist in Residence, Julian Wild, lives neither in the Borough or pays council tax: he actually lives in East Sussex! It's bad enough wasting thousands on this pointless extravagance....even more galling to find Julian Wild is not even a Borough resident! The Borough must be teeming with struggling artists who live and pay tax here....so why have we selected a non resident East Sussex County Council should be supporting.


Each month we ask an art world professional 10 
questions about their practice. This month we speak with the sculptor Julian Wild...


Born: Birmingham

Profession: I'm a sculptor. I graduated from Kingston University in 1995
Career Ambition: World domination
Life ambition: To be happy
10 Questions with... artist Julian Wild

  1. The Tories running K&C have obviously "lost it". Too many Councillors with too much money to spend and not enough to do. Another example of lunacy to join Exhibition Rd, the WEDGE, stainless steel telegraph poles, First Class travel to New York and dinner for friends at the Four Seasons by the Leader etc etc etc etc

    The whole lot of them need to be bundled out

  3. Why on earth is hard earned council tax being used to support an idiot whose ambition is "world domination" and who "wants to be happy". The Conservatives need to get a grip

  5. Why do the tax payers of Kensington and Chelsea need an artist in residence?

  6. Kensington and Chelsea is THE place to live. Two Mayors, a Bentley and a Jaguar, Resident Artist, civic Opera, streets paved with pink Chinese granite, and a Prime Minister in residence. Plus of course a palace and sprogs "of the blood"

    Only top people can expect to be welcome in the Royal Borough
