'It's like a cleanse for your body and mind': Vomit Painter artist throws up on canvas to create Jackson Pollock-style splatter paintings that Lady Gaga loves

We all know that some artists put their blood, sweat and tears into their creations, but one woman has taken it one step further - by using her own vomit.

Cutting edge artist, Millie Brown, began pushing the boundaries of the art world after becoming sick - literally - of using more traditional methods of painting.

The eccentric artist - whose unique work features in Ripley’s Believe it or Not! - uses a selection of dyed soy milk in a mixture of colours which she then swallows at various intervals, one at a time, before vomiting it onto a white canvas.

Didn’t some “artist” do this in Mondo Cane 2 back in the 1960s?

What crap that passes for “art and culture” today.

Not clicking on the link—is she cute? If yes, she is truly revolutionary, and I’d like to see more of her work in private. If no, then I’m sorry to take a pass, but I have a lot of things to do.

This is just degradation.

It’s no worse than some of the other so-called art. LOL :)

The two things you don’t want to see made are legislation and modern art.

I laugh at what’s considered “art” these days.

Speaking of Pollock...

*snip*

The existence of this policy, rumoured and disputed for many years, has now been confirmed for the first time by former CIA officials. Unknown to the artists, the new American art was secretly promoted under a policy known as the “long leash” - arrangements similar in some ways to the indirect CIA backing of the journal Encounter, edited by Stephen Spender.

The decision to include culture and art in the US Cold War arsenal was taken as soon as the CIA was founded in 1947. Dismayed at the appeal communism still had for many intellectuals and artists in the West, the new agency set up a division, the Propaganda Assets Inventory, which at its peak could influence more than 800 newspapers, magazines and public information organisations. They joked that it was like a Wurlitzer jukebox: when the CIA pushed a button it could hear whatever tune it wanted playing across the world.

“What’s next, the poop painter?”

There have been several “sculptures” already in that medium.

IIRC, one of the last, if not the last, "creative endeavors" by Andy Warhol was urinating on canvasses to sell as "art" to people with more money than brains.

I recall a Charlie Sheen/Angie Harmon movie with a scene that has them attending a live avant-garde enema art equivalent to the vomiting artiste.

(Sheen gets a colon-load of paint to the upper body...)

Another pretentious “ar-teest” trying to get 15 minutes of fame by being “edgy”.

BTW, maybe TMI, but I remember at least 15-20 years ago, there was a guy who did something very similar with non-toxic paint enemas. So she’s not even really pushing the shlock art envelope that much.

So yeah, she’s just a poseur.

Sorry I'll take Warhol's piss art over this idiocy.

Or hear is a radical thought. Actually get a canvas and some brushes and some paint and you know paint a damn picture.

Or is that too hard anymore?

Way back when I used to watch 60 minutes they did a piece on a famous collector of modern art and as the collection was displayed to Mike Wallace one of the “collectibles” was a can with some modern artistes poop in it.. Wallace was a bit incredulous that it had any value artistic or otherwise.

If you saw her on the street - probably not bad at all.

Doing her “art” — not so much

Well, that’s one way to get attention if your artistic skills won’t do it for you.....
