7/30/2006: Penis painting (NSFW)



You've got to be kidding me. OMG, you're not kidding me.

The full story (at Yahoo, willl expire) expains that Aussie Tim Patch is indulging in this type of "art". Apparently he uses only acrylics and they just wash off with water.

"Peenting", I would call it. He calls himself "Pricasso".

Another story says

Quote:
He only uses water-based paints and sells his paintings for around A$300 (US$250).

Patch says the road to becoming a prolific artist is a rough one.

"There is a limit to how long one can paint for, especially on canvas," he said on his Web site.

He adds that taking his work seriously helps him from getting too excited.

"I take the performance very seriously. It is entertainment," he said on his website. "Erotic, yes, but non-sexual. It's a gift, it's art."
A gift! Whatever. I find this one to be annoying in just about every way, but it's expert attention whoring, and I suppose I have fallen for it by making it an IotD.



What I do with my own unit, I also consider to be art. It's just not for public display.

Yea but is it art???

My wife and I were in Aruba a few years ago and attended an artist show that was coupled with the first tasting of that year's Nouveau Beaujolais (November as I recall). Kind of a wild cocktail party for the sake of art.

Anyway the renowned local artist had an unusual style for producing his big canvases. He would paint the body of a young nude woman and then she would roll on the canvas leaving paint to produce the art. Let me just say that abstract puts it mildly!

This definitely brings that to mind.

http://www.yvesklein.org/ was doing that nearly 45 years ago. go to "works"

Also Matisse once said something about painting with his cock, figuratively, I'm sure.

I'll have to look that up.

He's just ripping off Shigeo Kubota's 1965 performance (NSFW).

There is a joke in this about oil or latex paints but I can't find it.

Talk about your "happy little clouds."



wolf  Sunday Jul 30 11:33 PM

His art doesn't look all that impressive. Neither does his wang.



Elspode  Monday Jul 31 01:52 PM

Actually the joke is more along the lines of, "I hope he isn't mixing his own water colors"...

He had to be an Aussie didnt he?

Oi... anyone seen Kagen, recently?:p

Perhaps he heard paint by numbers as paint by members?

I think you should be more kind to such a renowned "member" of the art community.

(Groan!)



capnhowdy  Tuesday Aug 1 11:09 AM

Looks like He's trying to get a blow job from the painting. That's prolly as close as he'll ever get.

I dunno -- there appears to be an outstanding portrait of Dick Cheney in the lower left corner. By private request, I'm sure.
