    Totally NSFW debut: Justine Lai

    Wow. Just saw this entry on drawn.ca

    It's an artist Justine Lai drawing fine art paintings of herself having sex with every American president.
    You can check out the various paintings at justinelai.com

    Talk about being controversial and attention grabbing.

    Warning. It's not suitable for work.

    Hahahaha, read her artist's statement, it's full of bs. I don't think this is controversial, but stupid. And not very well done from a technical point of view.

    Heheh, in one painting she's sucking off Lincoln. She's like, totally, humanising him.

    Well, you've got to say it's original. Much better than poop art, which we've discussed at some length.

    I can't say I've ever seen an artistic depiction of a President in an act of oral sex.

    Except for one, maybe.
    The truth will set you free,
    but first it's gonna piss you off!

    Ahahaha, it's funny, no more, no less. It's funny and there aren't many people who get the idea 'Let's make a bunch of pictures wherein I have sex with praesidents.

    There was also that site, selffelatio.com or something about 'artistic' pictures of a some guy and in each the guy performed autofelatio.

    before more people laugh about this I have to say that it works for me, cool statement, it's absurd and obvious but more than "just funny"
    I always find it annoying how many ca members laugh about other forms of art

    Not saying i like it, but it's definitely interesting. Something that will make me stop and read the info when there's a whole bunch of art in a gallery.

    Yap, some times art can be just doing what no one has done before, especially if it's a way to criticize things. Like that one white canvas by some famous artist which was just a white canvas with a black text:

    'This is not art, at least not yet, but the moment I sign it it will be, just watch me.

    - :name of the artist:'

    or some-thing like that, can't recall any more. Criticizing what you hate is easy, criticizing what you like is much harder and creative.

    Any way, some positions where nice.

    I wish they were painted either better or worse. They're neither good nor bad enough to be interesting, just standard issue early 21st century art school untrained realism.

    I understand what she's going for but I don't think people really see the president as some infallible immortal figure. Hell when Bush was president you couldn't walk 10 feet without hearing another "BUSH IZ DUMB LOLZ" statement

    But still, I have been saying for years someone needs to paint themselves sucking off Lincoln. So for that she has my thanks
