Wisdom of the Heart (Neon) by FTA Collective
From the series, The Land That Time Forgot, the FTA Collective create work in a self-reflexive manner. Composed of neon, the works are a direct statement recognizing the object or text as opposed to the artist’s voice.FTA aims for each work to be visually seamless and flawless in composition.
FTA Collective is an artistic collaboration between multiple international artists under the pseudonym FTA. Influenced by the anonymity of British street artist Banksy, FTA work anonymously as a statement against the commercialization of art and the cult of celebrity artists. FTA believe that art should be judged purely on its aesthetic and ideological values, not on who the artist is. Specializing in high gloss, politically provoking subject matter, FTA neon ‘s aim to enfranchise collectors beyond the realm of collecting “name artists”.
