‘Cleaning is good for the soul,’ says artist Moose Curtis. ‘It never fails to have a therapeutic effect.’ If that’s true, then Curtis must be the calmest man in all London. The so-called ‘clean artist’, who creates images by selectively removing grime and dust from dirty surfaces, has just finished creating his biggest work yet: a 370 square metre piece that stretches along the south bank of the Thames, from the pavement of Queen’s Walk to the walls of the Oxo building. The artwork, sponsored by cleaning product Flash, will disappear for good on April 16. Dhanya Nair
