Odd Art: The Revenge


This velvet masterpiece of vivid pathos was painted by an anonymous (and possibly embarassed) artist. The striking imagery and social commentary are truly a sight to behold-- perhaps a subtle reference to the postmodern agony of urban life, or possibly a subconscious manifestation of the artist's inner demons.

No matter.

The important thing is that this amazing work is available for us all to study and admire.

I'd hazard a guess that the artist's innder demons had a few too many tacos by the distressed look on its face.

Is that a hypodermic syringe on the floor? What's the symbolism of that?
Truly an inspired work.

Now we know why cats, dogs, horses, etc. don't use toilets...holding your tail up on the john must be a real pain in the ass, especially w/o opposable thumbs.

Also, did you notice that the subject has grinch feet?

smoking, intraveneous drug use, and leaving the toilet paper roll on the floor = satanic constipation

This could. quite possibly, be the artist's reindition of the aftermath of a trip to Mexico....

For some reason, maybe the coloring, I really DO like the painting!

Now I just need a red and black velvet decor bathroom to put it in...

I really need to get an art education because I thought the artist was commenting on all the demons out there that are a pain in the ass, doctors (syringe), news media (cigarette), and lawyers (you would have to get the demon to move to find the substance representing them). Sigh.
