the swedish artist dan wolgers were asked to design the cover of stockholm phone book in 1992.
one example can be viewed at museum of moderns arts i new york. (i've seen prices ranged from 100 to 600 dollars)

another time when he had an exhibition at Liljevalchs, (a big art museum in stockholm) he stole two benches.
which he instantly auctioned off. (people actually when there to look at the empty space big_smile) when he was convicted for embezzlement. he sold the unopened letter from the court for 2000 $, the same letter where later sold for almost 40 000 $

Re: Contemporary Art Thread

Not many portrait artists can add "war criminal" to their list of accomplishments. Surrounding himself with gormless friendly faces in an effort to keep at bay the many faces of death that haunt his dreams.

Re: Contemporary Art Thread

-faces of death that haunt his dreams.

If i'm gonna be a bit cynical, remorse, responsibility, honesty, self-doubt and humility
ain't usual traits of the leaders we choose. I doubt he has any problem with bad dreams.

Yes. Those would be exclusionary factors in the main. I was aiming for satirical promo blurb. Works better if you read it with an emphatic news segment delivery.

Can't help feeling like he is subconsciously or otherwise, desperately trying to rebrand his legacy.

Re: Contemporary Art Thread

maybe your right.
good luck with the rebrandig mr.president.
