MMM'20: For Art's Sake!



~ You may be wondering what's up with this ~

But hold on, it's a good story...

~ about Damien Hirst's famous dotted painting in a Bristol Museum ~


That was painted over by street artist, Banksy


You can read about it and my response here




~ here's my rendition ~

~ painted on pieces of canvas, sewn together to make a top ~



~ as worn by me in 2012 ~




~ and now in 2020 ~



~ titled with homage to Magritte, if you get my drift ~




Happy trails...

  1. Gosh, you painted that yourself! Amazing. I had to check out your former links to get the backstory ;). It appears like it may be sunny. Is your weather getting better?

    1. Hi KimMalk, yeah I'm an artist, but moved into sewing several years back. You could see my artwork on my website at: www.patottoart.com

    1. Hi Valerie! The audaciousness of Banksy is sublime. And Hirst graffiti-ed painting is practically priceless now. It was a fun parable to continue to play with. Glad you enjoyed the process.
