A (post) postmodern expression for the urban/contemporary artist, one who has the ability both to invent and conceal, communicate and absorb. Based on the poetics of camouflage Golding
and flaneur Baudelaire, Benjamin
, emphasising the nomadic, rhizomatic energy-skills of the curious, the technician, the editor and the eccentric.
The urban artist who feels more at home with wanderings, non-representational expression, political agency without moralising: this is the camouflaneur.
