This is art that will get you beaten


According to this article from yesterday's New York Times making art like this will land your dealer in the hospital.

They are by two Siberian artists who call themselves Blue Noses. Their real names being Vyacheslav Mizin and Alexander Shaburov.

If you would like more information, click on this.

If you can read Russian, more details appear to be here, as well.

The New York Times' article also mentions work by Alexander Djikia, although from the images there I'm not certain what there is to get offended about.

And finally, if you thought that this was solely a Russian phenomenon, may I remind you that back in May 2004, a San Francisco art dealer, Lori Haigh got beaten up for displaying a painting. (Post One, and Post Two)

Note to Mr. Bown, hire a couple of bodyguards before you do a groups show of Guy Colwell and Blue Noses, ok?
