PURE FILTH ISSUE 1

When contemporary artist Sam Harris presented his first piece of art to an elderly relative she was able to sum it up in two words; “Pure Filth!”. This now infamous utterance has been reclaimed and becomes the title of this collaborative publication.

Featuring original artworks from a wide community of artists, designers and creatives, ‘Pure Filth’ exists as a compendium for the most contentious, intoxicating and downright filthy artworks the current contemporary art scene has to offer!

Perhaps it could serve as an antidote to the current climate of censorship, scandal and outrage addiction, or at the very least act as a bastion for artistic expression, unbridled creativity and much needed humour.

– Hector Campbell, Art Historian, Writer & Curator
