Human Obama Sculpture.

Ha ha.

(From a slideshow of the "world's worst public art," which is worth clicking through.)

I don't mind the spider or the cowboy boots.

Where do the pigeons land.

I like the neon runners! But yes, the Obama one is hilariously bad. At least it's not permanent.

I feel a little sorry for the people who have to have Obama ears painted on their genitals.

Is that a woman on the right or a guy with moobs? Either way, Michelle would not have approved.

HUMAN OBAMA SCULPTURE: ATHENS, GREECE

What's a Grecian Urn?

Nothing. He's on the dole.

Bart!

John Burgess said...

'Neon Runners' works for me.

Saint Croix said...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. He's on my body, get him off!

george said...

If that one guy gets a boner the Secret Service will need to tackle him before Obama has an eye poked out.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

I like most of those, but not the naked Greeks.

Mitchell said...

I miss the good old days when animal statues had testicles you could rub for good luck.

Paul Kirchner said...

Yes, these are funny, but for sheer awfulness none of them can compete with certain "high art" eyesores like Richard Serra's "Tilted Arc."

Saint Croix said...

Totalitarian art really freaks me out.

At least those damn Greeks aren't singing the Obama song.

I'm disappointed that Tampa's famed Exploding Chicken didn't make the cut.

Peter said...

What the bad public art (mostly) has in common: gigantism.

What is it about bad art that demands it be done at such a massive scale?

(With the exception of the phallus, of course. Phallic art just demands to done on a huge scale.)

@peter

Really? You were the one to bring up phalli? :-)

Carnifex said...

Someone needs to do a little midnight engineering, and paint a postage stamp moustache on the teddy bear, and a red arm band.

Spiders creep me out. They have too many eyes.

Dueling Tampons? And red no less. Someone was flowing hard that day.

London apparently can't afford the Blue Man Group.

And the Euro...Nothing sez self absorbtion like naming a great big ugly piece of shit after yourself, and thinking you're clever. I took a big dook this morning, I called it "If I had a son,..."

Carnifex said...

Dang...would've better to say Zero took the dook...hindsights 20/40.

Nah. It just looks like somebody's nephew got a Mig welder and a pile of steel scrap.

No. I won't go there.

Yes I will.

Actually, I kind of like the giant Siberian ice schlong. And, after all, there can't be all that many people around to be offended by it, judging by the photo.

The fairy on the toad, though ... that's offensive to the eyes even as a tabletop-sized model. Imagine it public-art-sized and count your blessings that the project was canceled. Just knowing that such a thing existed, even three thousand miles away, would give me nightmares.

Amartel said...

A bunch of pudgy white people with different aspects of Obama painted on their naked bodies.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Democrat[ic] Party!

Someone is getting paid, a lot, do do these things.
