Remember when an American artist got in trouble for Chocolate Jesus?
People in Britain are much more laid back when it comes to art.
Artist Dan Baldwin created a painting called “Fuck Religion” (seen above).
Apparently, it’s popular in the town of Brighton:
Seventy-five limited edition prints of Fuck Religion were sold – at £400 each.
That’s $804.88 in American dollars.
$60,366 total for those keeping count. (Of course, there would be three 6s in the number…) And it all sold out in under an hour.
As Mediawatchwatch says:
Clearly there is money in fucking religion these days.
Personally, I never understand art, In the painting above, I see a skull with crosses in the eyes… the Virgin Mary… a red knife… half a dollar bill… Would anyone like to explain to me what that all means?
Baldwin is the same guy who painted (the prequel?) Holy Fuck, as seen here:
That one also sold out pretty quickly.
