I mean seriously, has AWW done anything worse (politically) than this:

Czech Republic's own piece is an LED display, which flashes controversial quotations by Czech President Václav Klaus


This art work was displayed at the EU building in Brussels for all to see and it was an embarrassment to each and every country.

No one went to jail.

Art is expression, pure and simple.

Sometimes the subject matter is political.  

It's still art.

You might not always like or agree with what an artist has to express, but I support their right to do so wholeheartedly.

Anyways, I wonder if AWW is a fan of Cerny?

From my understanding .........

AWW is completely contemptuous of art in any proscribed form ........

That is why he likes to destroy what he calls 'found' art .......

Such as Ming vases and antique urns  ......

Artists are their own type of people.

Their weird - it just goes with the title.

I still can't understand why this particular one is getting so much attention from you.

Why care?  He's just an artist.

Oh ........  !

Not that again  ........     

Am I not allowed to try and understand why others find his art so good .........  ?

Why does that make me odd .......  ?

Should I just die Fenix without trying to find an answer to a question that happens to be of interest to me  ........ ?

I appreciate you taking your time to vote and make comment .......

But I am not the topic ..........
