Guns Carved into Wooden Desks

Guns Carved into Wooden Desks

Ben Turnbull, a controversial artist from London, creates unusual works of art by carving the shapes of toy weapons into wooden school desks.

The artist, passionate critic of the American political system, explains why he uses toys in his work: “Force fed on violence, abused by a controlling superpower and blackmailed through patriotism, the public are ultimately as disposable as the toys they once played with”.

    “Force fed on violence, abused by a controlling superpower and blackmailed through patriotism, the public are ultimately as disposable as the toys they once played with”

    He’s talking about you not kids….he’s talking about all of us who have grown up surrounded by our government’s violence. Their war mongering ways. Killing millions.
