While I can paint, after a fashion, I was told many years ago, by my Warden (They called the Headmaster a Warden) at the detention centre in Scotland where I was consigned on the Perthshire Archipelago, that there was no money in art. He was wrong about that. Damien Hirst has been taking the piss for years, relieving rich lawyers, bankers and magnates, industrial and advertising, of their money… in substantial amounts… and good on him!
As a ‘homage’ to BritArt and inspired by @infobunny and her recent paintings, I decided to amuse myself last night and late this afternoon. The works reveal absolutely no subtlety of colour, tone, design or, indeed, talent. This is as it should be in ‘The FuckArt’ School’ which I founded late last night after dipping into a second bottle of the Bourbon King’s finest Rioja. Typical of the Fuckart school is the use of spray paint used for repairing scratches on motorcars. Charonaletto is the leading proponent of the ‘let’s get completely pissed and paint’ technique and he told the director of a Gallery in Chelsea (who has expressed interest in these two seminal works) “Vandals and Goths brought Rome down. I’d like to have a crack at a bit of that as well and spray cans of paint as a base seemed an appropriate metaphor.”
There are two works in the ‘Fuckerflies” series
Fuckerflies III (I shall be getting pissed again soon) can be customised with diamonds at the request of the purchaser
