VINZ was in town recently and left a few of his amazing labor intensive paintings that highlight the world of natural beauty and hybrids. Remember when George Bush warned us about this in his State of the Union address? Yes, he did.
In the case of Vinz, these new wheatpastes dripping with oil are direct nods to famous sculptures you would have learned about during that History of Art class in college.
“I’ve used famous sculptures adapted to my characters, to denounce the danger of gas fracking on the coasts of Ibiza and Valencia (Spain),” he says of the new pieces that are direct rebuilds of pieces by Michelangelo Buonarroti, Auguste Rodin or Antonio Canova.
Thankfully fracking would never happen here. Right?
