Police have issued video footage of thieves stealing examples of Hirst's artwork.I hope they catch these people.... and give them a fucking medal! Anyone who removes this shite from public view deserves to be richly rewarded.
I was in Malaga a few weeks ago, and having nowt better to do went to the Piccaso museum, seems he hung out with a load of other painters, and imo he wanted to join in but couldnt paint so he knocked out a load of pot bellied three eyed women with fat fingers, so I'm leaning on this wall looking at this stuff and this bird comes over and tells me to get off the wall, sorry says I, did he paint this as well? she snarls at me, I look the wall up and down, he was better with emulsion than oils wasnt he, she glares and flounces off, er indoors grabs my ear and removes me from the building.
I reckon he is a genius, in no way does he think his art is worthy of that money. He exploits the moronity of people with more money than sense; it is a big middle finger to the pretentious art world. 'Look what these idiots will buy just becuase i assembled it'.
I hope that is the case anyway, one big satire of the ridiculous art world.
Whilst in Glasgow last week we went to the Jack Vettriano exhibition - BRILLIANT! I know a lot of the 'art world' aka pretentious twats, don't like him or his work, but to see 120 of his paintings was fantastic. Funnily enough, for an artist famous fo his suggestive pictures, the only one we didn't like was one where the model's boob was hanging out. A highly recommended exhinbition.
Santa bought me a small framed print of 'On Parade' - look it up!
