The art world has its own ups and downs, but this year they suffered quite a few downs.
Domingo Zapata is the bearer of this bad art. He churns out C-grade portraits of Lindsay Lohan, Kim Kardashian and Sophia Vergara, covered in ugly graffiti-like paint, that go for around $100K. Somebody please pop a cap in this idiot so we can stop seeing his shenanigans all over the internet? Thanks.
This is what happened to the crackly old church fresco in Spain when an 80-some year old woman decided to try to restore the piece. She's reached internet fame, gotten some nice money out of the deal, and now bears the title "worst restorer in history." What's even weirder is that people love it!
Thsi polka-dotted man is the very same guy who strolled up to an $150K Salvador Dali work, casually dropped it in his tote bag and walked out of an art gallery at 5 pm. The survaillance crew is still kicking themselves over this one. With this outfit on, the man should have been able to stop from a mile away!
This is just gross. Who would have thought that Glenn Beck could ever make it in this world as an art maker? Beck took Andres Serrano's "Piss Christ" a little too personally and proceded to create his own pièce de résistance, "Obama in Pee Pee," an Obama bobble head in a jar of "urine" (beer).
It's just too weird.
Super idiot "artist" Vladimir Umanets made headlines when he scrawled the message "a potential piece of Yellowism" onto a Mark Rothko painting worth at least $8 million. He calls the sentence a "not art or anti art," as part of his own personal movement, "Yellowism." This idiot confused the hell out of everyone and landed himself two years in jail.
Two art thieves suffered a major FAIL moment when they successfully stole the Carl Larsson work "Clair-Obscur," from a private owner & realized that the hefty piece would not fit in their getaway car. Instead of figuring out another way to transport the piece, they robbers left it on the side of the road and drove away.
