Debauchery or Art?

POP ART, borderlines between basic art and valuable art. Many say POPART is just a movement not a type of art, I beg to differ. A good example of this question is an infamously famous collection Made In Heaven by Jeff Koons.

First shown at the 1990 Venice Biennale, it was a series of photographs, sculptures and paintings featuring Koons and CICCIOLINA (Llona Staller). The series caused controversy because of the positions and acts being performed. The series was all about sex, sex and sex. It’s a rather graphic series, striking and to some pornographic. To me, its the Style of Koons, a modern spin on Warhol’s 1964 Blow Job or the 1966 Chelsea Girls.

Sex was, is and will be such a taboo topic for people to discuss. What best way to get rid of such a stigma than by beautifully displaying the human act of sex, intimacy and intercourse through art. Bravo Koons.

What is Made In Heaven to you? Is it debauchery or is it art?

IF I CREATED SOMETHING YOU DIDN’T NEED, IT WOULD BE AN APP…

I don’c consider my self an artiste, but in our time and day we all get a chance at our fifteen minutes of fame. Creating an app is in a way an art form. Apps bring people together they celebrate those aspects of culture and community that we often deem forgotten. If i had the drive to create something I would create an app. Peek inside, you might find this interesting.

I would create a photo editing app, with a POPART era theme. The users would be able to edit the pictures by applying six different layers based on artists of the era. Each layer would transform the picture into a different art piece unique to the artistes unique style of art. The users would be able to save the pictures in a gallery and they would also be able to print and share the creations on Twitter, Facebook and any other social media.

The app would be created solely for editing and sharing purposes. It would be a fun way to create art pieces instantly and easily.
