Conceptual artist Chris Dobrowolski tells his own story in this fully illustrated
book. Inspired by his childhood books, we follow the making of his escape
vehicles from recycled materials: a boat, a car, a hovercraft, a plane, and
culminating in his great escape to Antarctica to build a sledge.
This book contains some strong language!
‘Art students in their thousands have been motivated and inspired by Dobrowolski’s
compelling and very funny lectures. In the most extreme and creative ways he turns
everyday life into extraordinary experiences. This book documents a lifetime of ingenuity
and ‘inner need’ that will change your view of what’s possible – no artist can do more.’
