Not only are we celebrating Easter but a year ago 5,000 ceramic eggs were placed in the tidal Thames by an artist by the name of Anon. Their identity unknown and with the same Banksy style of guerilla tactics of street art creates art in the form of sculptures to adorn landmarks, are socially or politically topical, placement and floating installations.
To date I have witnessed 10,000 hand-made ‘Anon’ hallmark pebbles placed on Brighton beach, 5,000 floating ceramic eggs placed in the Thames and still being found to this day, 60 ceramic butterflies denoting a £5 note placed along the Thames near the South Bank for the Queens Jubilee, ceramic birds in the rooftop garden at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, paper bags placed around the Olympic Park along with a horde of ceramic coins buried within the complex and most recently a number of ceramic bottles placed outside homes in Brighton bearing the quote from Lawrence Oats of Scott’s Antarctic Expedition, ‘I’m going outside I may be some time’. As an artist Anon is up there but little is know of who they are, all I can say is watch this space and I feel great things lay in store for the future of this artist.
What ever you may be doing this Easter, enjoy.
