Conrad Bo. Interviews himself again.

Conrad Bo: Hi how are you?

Conrad Bo: I am fine, funny you should ask because you should know.

Conrad Bo: You are right, anyway why do you interview yourself again

Conrad Bo: I am trying to do some propaganda work for The Superstroke Art Movement. As Picasso once said, propaganda is the most important aspect of any art movement. I am taking the advice of Picasso here and running with it. I also want to explain some of the more intricate aspects of The Superstroke Art Movement, and also Superblur, which refers to photography within The Superstroke Art Movement.

Conrad Bo: I am sure Picasso never said that.

Conrad Bo: If he did not then I am saying propaganda is the most important part of any art movement.

Conrad Bo: You are beginning to sound extremely boring. Tell a joke to make this interview more bearable for the people that will either listen or read it.

Conrad Bo: A doctor says to his patient, “I have bad news and worse news”.“Oh dear, what's the bad news?” asks the patient. The doctor replies, “You only have 24 hours to live.”“That's terrible”, said the patient. “How can the news possibly be worse?”The doctor replies, “I've been trying to contact you since yesterday.”

Conrad Bo: Not a bad joke better that your previous attempts. Now what about The Superstroke Art Movement do you want to talk about?

Conrad Bo: How about the manifesto of The Superstroke Art Movement that was written in 2008

Conrad Bo: Ok. What is written in the manifesto.

Conrad Bo:The Manifesto written for The Superstroke Art Movement is as follows:

1. Paintings should be executed using expressive even violent brushstrokes on at least some part of the picture.

2. Should a photograph be used for a figurative painting, the objection should not be Photorealism, but Expressionism.

3. If mediums such as pen, pencil, etc are used, the pen and pencil strokes must at least be overly expressive for it to be considered a Superstroke picture.

4. Paintings can be executed in both the abstract and figurative.

5. Subject matters such as Africa, light, dark, life and death are encouraged.

6. Collage, Stencil and Calligraphy may be used for impact.

7. The concept, Art for the sake of art, does not apply in Superstroke. In Superstroke it is art for the sake of Superstroke, as the artist must always strive for paintings rich in texture, or excessive brush or pencil strokes.

Conrad Bo: Cool manifesto, I wish I have written it.

Conrad Bo: You did.

Conrad Bo: I am getting tired. I am ending this interview.
