You really have to hand it to the British. They're great at stuff like this.

Nice bit of Wensleydale with a protest, eh?

I remember when you could go to an art museum and see pictures and sculptures of stuff. That was kinda nice.

He's smarter and less evil now.

[–] [email protected] 15 points 1 week ago

Oh no! Some rich person's pretty garbage was ridiculed!?

Heck off. I have real problems.

The painting is protected by glass, so no damage was done to the painting.

I read through way too many articles that failed to mention this important detail.

It's much less engaging this way.

Same shit that happens with every climate protest. "Climate protestors deface painting" etc.

[–] [email protected] 52 points 1 week ago (4 children)

It wouldn’t be a big loss. That painting is ugly as hell.

[–] [email protected] 6 points 1 week ago (2 children)

I can't stop thinking about how someone got paid to make this painting.

[–] [email protected] 4 points 1 week ago

Right? Spit right in the royal families face and they pay you for the privilege. Priceless and hilarious

He's pretty famous for making portraits. Here's his portrait of Idris Elba.

[–] [email protected] -2 points 1 week ago

Now that is a gorgeous balance of color and brush strokes. So why did the artist choose that awful color theme for Charles?

[–] [email protected] 9 points 1 week ago (1 children)

See, that isn’t ugly.

Which makes me think it was on purpose. Which makes me hate it a little less.

[–] [email protected] 8 points 1 week ago

He has a lot of upper class clients who he paints just as ... starkly as the king's portrait.

It is very much on purpose.

I like it because it's hella odd as shit. King, embrace the fuck-my-shit-up results of this glorious piece.

[–] [email protected] 75 points 1 week ago (2 children)

I think it's a terrific representation of the horrifically bloody history of the British Monarchy

[–] [email protected] 6 points 1 week ago

Yeah, I know the artist said some other bullshit to justify this choice, but to me it just looks like the blood their wealth was built on.

[–] [email protected] 15 points 1 week ago

Yeah, I don't think it was meant to be pretty lol

[–] [email protected] 3 points 1 week ago

It still looks like him, except happier.

[–] [email protected] 35 points 1 week ago

I wouldn't anger Count Vigo of Carpathia like that. Remember what happened the last time?

[–] [email protected] 26 points 1 week ago

He got turned into Wallace. The titular character.

Improved it tbh.
