Daily - You could say this painting stinks, but you won’t be offending anyone. Brooklyn-based street artist/hacker KATSU has created a portrait of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg using his own feces. It is described as a rendering of a tech giant who is “in control of more information than the government created from the compromising bio-matter of the artist.” KATSU, who is known around the city for his signature skull tag and work with a fire extinguisher, has mocked Zuckerberg before in a series of wheat pastes depicting him with a black eye. This latest piece is part of his first solo show called “Remember the Future,” featuring a variety of works that intersect art and technology. The others are not quite as bizarre as the poop painting but strange in their own ways as you can see from some highlights below. The exhibit runs through Feb 22 at The Hole.
It’s actually not bad at all. Looks a lot like him. And is made out of poop. Perfect. Maybe the message is all art is shit? Or maybe it’s a deeper message to Zuck that Facebook is irrelevant? Or maybe it’s a message to us all that after a weekend binging on pizza and beer and squeezing asses, the Monday morning craptacular is actually an existential piece of beauty.
