About the Artist:
Milton Springsteen's work was one of the stars of the record-breaking (240,000 visitors!) RISE Street art exhibition in Christchurch. Springsteen emerged from the shadows at New Zealand's first street art show, Oi You 2011, held in Nelson. Springsteen's "Corrupt Classics" series re-worked some of New Zealand's most famous paintings to cast a sharp light on the anomalies of the modern world. The actual identity of the artist known as Milton Springsteen is shrouded in mystery, the name however comes from the fictitious UK new town of "Milton Springsteen" (an amalgamation of Milton Keynes and Bruce Springsteen) created for a comedy album by UK comedian Alexei Sayle in the 1980s.
