Much the same concept as the music thread, but now with art:

The shiny farthing in the giant shit pudding that was the Young British Artists movement were Jake and Dinos Chapman.

http://www.jakeanddinoschapman.com/

Key works to check would be "Zygotic Acceleration" (in honor of the comment about Djurdjevic above  ;D) and the "Hell" diorama.

"Hell" was destroyed in a warehouse fire in 2004 (please insert sarcastic comment here) but was reinvented as the larger and more extensive "Fucking Hell" of 2009.

By far my favorite (running pretty close to "Fucking Hell") was "Insult to Injury", a 2003 desecration of a mint condition set of 80 Goya etchings printed from the original plates.

Thanks a ton for contributing. I really enjoyed their website, and insult to injury was quite neat.

Can we post anything on here that's new or does it have to be "art" in the traditional sense?










I like giant fortress cities and airships a lot.  ;D


Are there any artists out there using Escher's techniques? I have a big book with random works of art by people after him using his techniques, but most of them are just way too simplistic.

The Japanese seem to be infected by a sort of hypercreativity which they cannot harness for anything even remotely serious. Everything has to be so freaking fabulous all the time.

Like this. Its like Japan as depleted their entire stock of testosterone during the war and the entire country is now run by scrawny androgynous wimps who look like prepubescent boys.

They went from this:



To this:



I mean, Jesus Christ.

One more for good measure:

Oh yeah, that is definitely a scary aspect.   :-X
