Artist Anthony Schrag Challenges the Public to Wrestle Him

LONDON.- Are you frustrated? Depressed that the Christmas season has passed and there are two or three months of short, cold, dark days until the spring and sunshine return? Is the economic downturn bringing you down with it? Are you tired of waiting for culture to rejuvenate your empty high streets? If so, and you need to direct your feelings of disappointment and negativity somewhere constructive, Anthony Schrag has the answer. For one day only he will be your human punch-bag, because he wants to see you ‘smile and sweat’. Schrag is fed-up with culture that plays it safe and offers cerebral solutions. He is far more interested in making a direct physical connection with his audience, even if it means he ends up pinned to a wrestling mat.
