In this book about Banksy, there`s a whole section dedicated to him modding famous paintings and stuff.
That`s the only connection I can make.

I can see the first thing he did was clean all the crud of the painting, Making it brighter. That`s an improvement in and of it`s self.

"look at the nose, the cartoonishness,and the eyes, and tell me thats not squidword..."

Squidward wouldn`t chop his nose off. Completely unrelated, I can`t stop sniffing my finger; I can`t place the smell......but now, you`re all doing the same.

"exactly nobody would expect that and manhattens penis was free from aal charges and could go on impragnate woman and give them endometrial cancer"

But dr manhatten didnt give anyone endometrial cancer... they just made it look like he did! so that he would leave for mars and ossiemandias could mess the world up :)

-Being picky here, but technically Dr. Manhattan can`t travel through time, but can access different points in time without changing anything. It`s more of re-living memories/past events exactly the same, rather than time-travel.-

I think this is awesome. To those who say this is disrepectful, im sure he made sure it was ok. As an artist, i would never do that to someones work without permission. But come on, that is pretty hilarious!

Totally badass. I don`t think a guy would go out and spend 100 bucks on an original painting just so that he could paint an awesome Squid destroying it.

i gotta say i agree with you green...it`s really disrespectful of the original artist. --like he said, if it`s a reprint that`s another thing entirely. I think I threw up a lil bit when i saw the second one. O.o

I should clarify and say that the artist who did the repainting is the one that isn`t to my taste.

I actually think the first one is better. The artist`s style just isn`t to my taste. If a better artist had painted in something similar, or maybe if it had been Cthulhu, it would have been better.

It also kinda makes me cringe that he`s painting over someone else`s work. If it were a mass produced work, that would be one thing, but if someone hand painted that painting, I think this repurposing equates to vandalism.

Why does the second picture remind me of Watchmen?

maybe because it sorta looks like the octopus bird thing that really killed everyone

@Heureux

It is quite possible to have varying, but valid opinions on many things such as politics, religion, culinary preferences, and yes, even art. You are, however, mistaken in the notion that it is possible to have an opinion regarding the works of Banksy as "bad". You are foolish and blind for alleging that Banksy has no talent and that his work is "sh*t", as you put it. Assumably, you`ve never actually given his work a decent amount of thought or consideration. If you had, you would come to understand that Banksy`s work is profound, complex, yet accessable. He is a master of his medium, and has the ability to present a complex idea in an utterly simple manner. Try taking a second look at Banksy, and I`m sure you will side with me on this issue. Thank you.

the words `banksy` and `masterpiece` go together as well as the words `sh*t` and `delicious`.

Almost any piece of art can be vastly improved with the addition of a gigantic squid with razor sharp teeth! I`d love to see "The Last Supper" or "Mona Lisa" reworked this way.
