Bad art is timeless

Have you visited the Museum of Bad Art yet?


I think you should.

Collected from dumpsters across America.

Moi, I like the bottom one, where 'Richie' (Lionel Richie??) has painted Michael Jackson holding a horse's head. A head which appears to have no connection to a body.

There is a reason for everything, no?

Also the first piece intrigues,
paying homage both to Munch
(the Scream, 1893, topic/the-scream )

and, rather more convincingly, DalĂ­ (the astonishing 'Apparition of face and fruit dish on a beach', 1938, )

well, I'm not sure ANY art is "bad art"... but, I do agree that some is not-as-good-as-others.. LOL

The cat one scares me.

Man: They're so hateful, they're loveable.

Deep: I think your comparisons just elevated them waaaay beyond what the original artists would ever have imagined.

TS: That cat is truly disturbing. But I think the "portrait" of Hilary and Chelsea Clinton (at least, that's who I'm seeing) is the stuff of nightmares. The colours...the bone structure...shudder.
