I like mr Jenkins work it does provoke thought about society in general and that particular location specifically but I have one question; Did Mr Jenkins notify local authorities that he was putting up such emotionally charged work so that tax dollars, euros, pesos, etc weren't wasted responding to murder scenes that were really art?

Wow!!!!
I have seen some of this works, but never had the chance to know who made them!
Congratulations! very creative!!!!!

banksy's from bristol.

id like to apologize. That comment was incorrect. There is concept and i was confused as to why this was the piece chosen, so i visited your site, and it is veryyy interesting. Magnificent. I apologize and DO appreciate your contribution to the art world.

Reminds me of London's Banksy...

its very interesting.

Amazingly cool--not traditional art, but very interesting

I also advise everyone to look at mark's website. these barely summarize the scope of his work, and there are some extremely interesting pieces. Excellent use of tape. 5 stars!

It reminds me a lot of Erwin Wurm...

not impressed
