ABOUT

The Mollusc Dimension is Angelus Squid Marr, an independent,
experimental British-Chinese artist who works in diverse
fields, styles and genres: Animation, Song-writing, Lyrics-
writing, Zines, Live Performance, Music Recording, Teaching,
Illustration & Poetry.

The Mollusc Dimension is a place where subculture gulps
breakfast tea out of a red camping mug with genuine alien-
approved antiquated folk-songs from the nth century (or
earlier). Interruptions, word-play, non-sequiturs, a sense
of fantasy and surreal humour are among the Mollusc
Dimension's favourite ingredients of a song/ story/ image.
Topics of interest range from love and other imaginary
adventures, daily experiences to unexpected encounters.

The name Squid (used from around 2007-) artfully conjures up
the image of a character who uses ink as a problem-solving
method/answer to the challenges of life. The Mollusc
Dimension goes beyond the idea of one entity, instead
suggesting there is a whole world of tiny blob-shaped
creatures who live on the peripherals of mainstream culture,
and other rigid conventions.

Having undertaken commissions for private clients as well as
larger organisations, The Mollusc Dimension is interested in
developing a few hundred of the thousands of little ideas
for self-initiated projects erupting from his cephalopod
imagination over the past decade and seeks collaborations
with other artists. Angelus holds an MA in Illustration &
Animation (Distinction) from Kingston University, an LTCL
in Piano Performance (Distinction) and a BA (Hons) in
English from York University.

"Imagine you're in a building. Access to art is like having
a window. Through this window, you can see different places,
talk (or sing) with people, invite animals in, climb out if
you need to get out in a hurry, or climb in if you forgot
your key."
