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

          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.

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

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

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

            See, that isn’t ugly.

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

              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.

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

    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.

    ~~If it were something that could easily be removed I’d laugh

    Since it appears to be a lot more permanent. Hopeful they do jail time for vandalism.don’t destroy artwork.~~

    Edit : I’ve been told it its over glass. So in that case. Then it’s good for a laugh.

      Jail time for nonviolent activism is excessive, and will probably motivate, not deter, more people to do the same.

        Hmm nah. I am less likely to do something if I know it will result in me going to jail.

      It’s over glass and ummm… I think it’s more important to first stop torturing animals and worry about the well being of inanimate objects later.

      Does “don’t destroy artwork” apply to people whi tear down statues of like Saddam or Mussolini? Or what about confederates or slave owner statues?
