‘I could have painted that’: Brilliant children’s book pokes fun at pretentious art

In late 2013, artist Miriam Elia launched a successful fundraising appeal on KickStarter for We Go To The Gallery, a children’s book with the look and feel of these Ladybird Books for birds. The book mocks the art world, as well as takes on decidedly un-kiddy themes like sex and death.

‘I thought it would be humorous to see Mummy, Peter and Jane going to a really nihilistic modern art exhibition’, she said to The Independent. Unfortunately, sales of the book are now halted as she’s now involved in a legal tussle with Penguin Books, which owns the Ladybird brand.
