It was ridiculous and awesome. This guy hired a bunch of people to make his art so that he could bill himself as an epic artist, and essentially created celebrity out of nothing. AMAZING.
I think everyone has joked about how anyone could splatter paint on a canvas and sell it for a million bucks - THIS GUY DID IT. He was like, "I like this art, I think it's cool, I'm going to copy all of it," and it WORKED. People were like, "YES THIS GUY IS A GENIUS." And maybe he was. But was he???? INSANE. Like he didn't even bother trying to do things the "right" way, he just did them his way because he was sort of crazy.
I can't even. So amazing. It's always the simplest ideas that are so fucking brilliant...just hire people to make amazing art for me!! I really hope that he paid the people who made his art well enough to make it worth it, that's the ONE thing that irked me...they made the shit, they deserve a cut of the earnings.
But still. Crazygonuts.
