This is what I've done.
I respectfully decline to either confirm or deny anything else I may or may not have done in the past,
on the grounds that it may incriminate me.
I gained the lowest grade of my year at both art college & degree and did not apply for a masters as planned.
I have exhibted in Manchester, Liverpool, London & New York and have work on permanent display in (the Equalities Division of) Birmingham Town Hall.
However, I grew increasingly tired of the repetative, culturally bias intellectual superiority complex I felt deemed me incapable of authentic artistic/spiritual sophistication which I found so prevelant.
I consequently ceased seeking the percieved prestege and approval of evidently misguided opinions.
