Ed Arantus - Erogenous Zone to Funny Bone

Ed Arantus'
Sushi Poem
Welcome to Jawspring, the exhibition that is celebrating World Poetry Day on the 21st March by fusing Art and Poetry.

Ed Arantus is not only an artist and activist but an all round good egg. As a regular visitor to my studio I have been lucky enough to witness his artistic talents first hand. He still remains a bit of mystery and it was with great surprise to receive a Haiku from him last week. He is no stranger to exhibitions and publications, it was his entry into the cutting edge Censored Zine of July 2010 that piqued my interest, alongside a few risqué photos too. Always playful, whether that be erogenous zone or funny bone, here he gives us his JawSpring haiku called Smug......

dotting my eyes
crossing my teeth
Tapping my knows.
