where are the Asian punk boys?
I found Gottfried Helnwein
Oh my god I'm so excited, I found this artist with whose works I am quickly falling in love. (Correct grammar? Yes? No?) His name is Gottfried Helnwein, I was not aware of his existence until my adventure to a second-hand bookstore tonight. He is ingenius, I love how dark and grotesque his works are, through the use of child models. SURREALISM. Words cannot express my feelings right now!

If you are hypnotized by his works, or just interested by his Nazi references, go to his website to look at more paintings. He also does photography, installations, and theatre. I saw pictures of his rendition of Macbeth and I'm really dying to see it!
He's having a one man show in San Francisco in April, I'm so going.

Now that you mention it, it does! I was thinking of Mickey Mouse the whole time, and happy about it, for some reason.

Oh I'm sorry; I think he's a Nazi sympathizer, he had a painting with Hitler and two children beside him, and I thought that was just too provoking to post, so if you want to look, go to his website (or maybe you don't)
