Scream painting back on display

It's a shame it's been slightly damaged, but I'm glad it's back on display. It's by far my favourite work of art.

These are STUNNING:



New Penguin Bond covers by Michael Gilette.

I think I'm going to buy one. Or all of them.

Those are fantastic, and I've never bought any Bond books so I might have to get these.

I like a girl with 'Thunder Ball' written on her back.

I've never heard of this artist before but I love his stuff! The blog has some fine examples. The Man with the Golden Gun cover especially.

Over the past few months I've become a huge fan of the work by Bortusk Leer, it's nice a fresh and always cool to see a new piece up on the way to work.

I like his style. It's interesting how he lays the color down and then draws the details on top. I wonder if he's got an idea of the final product before he begins.

Went to a private view of Hush and Copyright last night. Was going to a buy a print of this, but they'd sold out by the time we reached the queue. Bums. Although it saves me £250.

Jake and Dinos Annihilate Hitler Art

Despite their author, I canít help but feel a twang of anguish at the thought of any work of art being painted over by someone else.

I understand that the impact of the exhibition would be somewhat lessened had they used prints! Yet the thought of someone painting over 100 year old watercolours still makes me sad.

Itís an intriguing idea, and an exhibition Iíd be curious to see, but I suspect itís ultimately more shock than awe.

They are using the actual original artwork? That's shocking. I caught a piece about it on Newsnight last night but must have missed that they were using the originals.

They may not be great works, and they are by one of history's biggest villains, but they are still important pieces. His lack of artistic prowess indirectly led to one of the biggest events of the last 2000 years.

the chapman brothers have always come across as cocks. i quite liked some of their mannequin stuff, but everything i've seen since has just been a bit cack. i also remember watching them make something for damon and justine, way back when. she hated it asked them to do something else, they caved in and did.

if they had any balls, they'd have spend a couple of million on a famous piece, "annihilated" (cringes) that and rendered it worthless.

That was certainly the impression I got from the article:

QUOTE
Bought anonymously from collectors around the world for a total of £115,000, the Hitler watercolours are mostly plodding landscapes and a few smaller studies. The Chapman brothers have transformed them ó the gallery uses the word ďannihilatedĒ ó by painting rainbows, psychedelic skies, floating lovehearts and smiley faces into the background of each picture. The resulting work is now available as a job lot for £685,000. The brothers said that they were expecting angry reactions to the work but denied that it was offensive or that they were profiting from Hitler's notoriety.


Note that 'annihilating' them increases their 'value' six fold.

A price they have probably set themselves. How humble.

I wonder how they would feel if someone bought their "art" and destroyed it. Oh wait. That already happened.

On the way home I'm popping into the National Portrait Gallery with a marker pen. Help make a little extra money to help fund the arts.

The Chapman brothers are douchebags. Destroying another artist's painting to create your own is antithetical to everything the medium stands for. I don't care that Hitler painted them. Actually, the originals could yield some insight into Hitler's mind. It's not often mankind gets to examine a more perfect dichotomy of abilities; competent and prolific artistic creation and the capacity for staggering destruction are not attributes you'd expect to find in one person.
