This may seem a little strange. But Brazilian Art collective Autista has found that by using lo-fi fax machines to showcase young talent in and outside of Brazil it can avoid high taxes.

Brazilian artists Ramon Martins, Eduardo Recife, Elisa Sassi and Carlos Dias will fax their original artwork from Brazil on to the walls of KK Outlet. Meanwhile, UK artists Andrew Clark, Billie Jean, Mcbess and Jimmy Turrell will draw live in the KK Outlet and transmit their pieces to Pop Gallery.

An additional fax will be place in the window of KK Outlet at 42 Hoxton Square, London N1, where creatives from around the globe will be invited to fax artwork. All submissions should be sent to the following number  +44 (0)207 033 7681.
