“”... Artists like that don’t come around very often.”
Given the above picture, thank God.
If that’s what I had to show for 57 years on the planet, I might suck on the tail pipe too.
Those look like somebody put The California Raisins through a blender.
Looks like the crap I have to pretend to like that my grand-daughter brings home from pre-school.
Looks like somebody put The Fruit of the Loom guys through a blender.
It reminds me of the plush disease microbes from ThinkGeek.com. One of my daughters got “Common Cold” and “Bubonic Plague” with some of her Christmas money.
5 for me for laughing.
After looking at this guys crap I’m beginning to believe that tattoos truly are art.
I did one of those when I was a kid...
“Looks like somebody put The Fruit of the Loom guys through a blender.”
There was a time I taught Arts and Crafts classes and gave the little kids pompoms, cotton balls, ribbon, etc to create some object. Their results looked just like this only smaller.
How daring. How influential.
Not in my neighborhood they don't!
The black-and-white thingie is like if the Wicked Witch of the East were crushed by a falling cow, instead of a house, in the first color sequence of “The Wizard of Oz.”
I’d hesitate to call this stuff “art,” but there’s a bit of silly humor to it, at least.
Yeah, “no comment” was all I could come up with as well.
I love America, where a dude can sell a few pinatas for millions.
I wonder if he’ll be buried, or hung from a ceiling...
Kelley's life-size mannequin of Col. Sanders pulls back a drape to reveal a vitrine in which a tiny figure of Freud, psychoanalyst of childhood trauma complete with phallic cigar, has just stepped off a stage painted in swirling, psychedelic colors. A full-size version of the stage stands behind this sculptural tableau, while its image turns up as the set in a video, where the harem revolts against a princely male intruder. (LA Times)
“I wonder if hell be buried, or hung from a ceiling...”
Hung on a wall actually and they’ll call him Art.
