    The art world is full of snobs so you have to force your way in..... nice idea.
    Artistic terrorism - well sort of.

    That is hilarious and quite interesting... I guess It's been done by others too, but I really like the way the pieces seem to fit with the sorrounding paintings - untill you dicover the grafitti behind the admiral or the fighter-bomber wings on the beetle... thanks for passing that on...

    Perhaps guerilla-art would be a proper term for it :rolleyes:

    He seems to have some artistic talent. Andy Warhol comes to mind.

    those four paintings definitely show artistic talent in a variety of mediums too

    nice approch, you shouldnt be dead, an alcoholic or whatever to be a well known artist

    AWESOME!!
