When Plinking At Cans Becomes Art

Sunset over Manhattan:

Pretty neat how a pile of strategically placed shot-up garbage can cast a familiar looking shadow.

I’m disappointed that there is no artist provided “deep meaning”  behind this painting so i’ll make my own:

The urban silhouette cast by the shot up garbage represents the struggle man has with industrialism, only worsening with each rise of the morning sun.

Hmmm, a crumbling pile of garbage, it just looks like New York to me…

Indeed. It’s also nice to see that there wasn’t some ironic/edgy/deep meaning behind it (not counting Mikes of course lol.), it’s just, well, beautiful.

Bloomberg is definitely the mayor of that town.

When I first saw the quote I was about to get angry at the artist, but then I saw it was a tongue-in-cheek joke by you so I relented.
Usually I hate that kind of deep meaning stuff. What happened to making art because it looks nice? Why does it have to be edgy and deep?

anyone seen the barrett tattoos ?
I can’t find them any more,
there was this barrett-related blog with pics of people’s barrett logo and rifle tattoos.
… anyone know about those ?

Not sure what this blog post has to do with barrett tattoos… but no sorry I haven’t seen any.

Maybe because tattoo’s are by artists too? That’s the closest relation I can see… :-p
