It's Big Ronald!

Sjowol - McDavid (2006)I found this gem on Art News Blog this morning: Michelangelo's David recast as Big Mac by Sjowol. This is one of 72 entries in the latest Worth1000 Photoshop contest: Art Ads 2, Artistic Advertising. (Click the title link to see all of them.) The artists who enter these contests are amateurs who show up the alleged art displayed in "contemporary" art galleries for the old-fashioned, unimaginative, unprofessional tripe that it is. Look at the Warhol trash below. Twits pay fortunes for such rubbish! The amateurs competing for Worth1000 prizes are mainly doing it for fun. If the UK's impoverished galleries want to add to their collections on the cheap, this is the way to do it.

I thought you'd like this one. It's the funniest of the bunch, but some of the others in the comp. are very good too. I liked the Bouguereau Cupid picking off a Band-aid.
