    Yeah just ignore them weevil they do it on purpose!


    To be honest if this is the best an artist can come up with then you know he's been blessed with the least amount of talent. I'd love to post the wording on the plaque that inevitably accompanies this kind of shit but for some reason they never make it onto the net...

    I hate modern art.. when there is a toilet in the corner on its side and everyone discusses it saying it the best thing in the world.

    "o look at this. It like the artist is reaching out and saying something about society" -- NO its a fucking light switch you cunt!!

    I like banksy but this i pants..

    I think artist's like this need to be shot or at least hurt mildly for taking this sort of thing seriously.
    Anyone can shit on a canvas. There is no talent what so ever in any of this bollocks.
    How do they get to the point when they can charge huge amounts for not even doing anything ?
    I want in so i can make stupid amounts of money for doing nothing and having no talent.

    To be honest though it's as bad as fashion company's like stone island. They take normal clothes that you can buy anywhere else stick a shitty looking label on them and suddenly there worth £300 +

    My little brother owns loads of shitty stone island clothes and one of his jumpers is exactly the same as my old work jumper. When i stopped wearing it, he used one of his spare labels got my mum to sow it on and now uses it as a spare jumper.


    I feel sorry for him and everyone else that wears stone island because of a shitty label.

    people still wear stone island

    its italian and if youve ever worn a stone island top or whatever the fittings spot the fuck on and the jackets are worth £££ after about 5 or 10 years when they get rare especially those limited edition ones

    I think this was actually a pretty cool idea, when it was done by John Cage in 4"33' around 60 years ago. When you understand the thinking behind it it is interesting. But this canvas thing is just a really lame ripoff...
