Welsh sculptor John Brown burns his artwork in protest

Help

A Welsh artist has torched one of his works to support the Casoria Contemporary Art Museum in Italy which has started burning its artworks in protest at budget cuts.

Antonio Manfredi, of the Casoria Contemporary Art Museum in Naples, set fire to the first painting on Tuesday.

Sculptor John Brown lent his support by setting fire to one of his works - a piece titled Manifesto.

Mr Brown told the BBC that his organisation, the Documented Art Space in Harlech, North Wales, had exhibited at the Casoria museum in the past.
