    Posted this on the bandwidth thread a few days ago but am not satisfied with the response (I posted it with spoiler tags and don't think many saw it) so am posting it here too :D Just look at this!!! The original painting has apparently been destroyed so only screenshots exist. I'm sharing with the artist's permission (Bonnie Wrongford; I don't know her personally but she's in an FB group I'm in). Isn't this just absolutely glorious? :cool: (If you're going to share it on, please credit her by name with a link back to her FB page.)

    You got few responses because you were like omg this is so amazing but the painting is in fact rubbish.
    Don't know why you are promoting this artist.
    A friend or relative perhaps? (Edit oh a Facebook friend is it).

    If I was like this website is amazing blah blah here's a link it would be quite rightly deleted. Don't see why touting for an artist should be any different.

    Is it cool just because it's offensive? If so 'that' Cradle of Filth t-shirt will always win.

    Yeah I think it's the ooh aren't we being edgy angle that grinds me the most.

    At least the Cradle of filth guys did their sacrilegious item mainly because they thought it be funny.

    I just enjoy AD free urban.

    From the FAQ:

    No advertising of any kind. We are not interested in hearing about your company/website/club/product/new song/gig/glowing rave underpants. This is a non-profit, community discussion forum, not a free advertising resource and offenders will be booted off.

    This is just advertising via proxy. Yeah you can post my picture but make sure you wedge my name in there for all to see.

    How odd :D

    It's ok not to like the painting without speculating nonsense about why I've posted it, you know. You don't have to get cross about it.

    For the record, I have no connection to the artist or painting or interest in it other than thinking it is extraordinarily brilliant. :)

    The parodied style in which it's painted combined with a certain type of utterly mundane post-coital boredom on her face/humanness of her pose.

    Is this where someone finds a picture of Mohammed with his massive schlong hanging out and says how subversive and wonderful it is.

    Are you offended on religious grounds?

    I'd also like it to decide when it is...

    The pubic hair, robe and style of halo suggest BC.
    The Marlborough fag and blatant non Middle East pale skin suggests AD.

    I think the mashup of time and style is intentional, and is part of what I like about it. But of course that doesn't meant you can't dislike it for doing so.

    To my mind/eye there's very little to commend it. I don't find it aesthetically pleasing, thought provoking, or skilfully executed. And the hackneyed Madonna/whore shock shtick is a bit sixth form.

    Pretty much what Athos says.
    Clumsy.... and lacking in any subtlety that would entice the viewer to look further for meaning....it's boring....theme wise it's been done to death and I just dont like it.

    It's not often I agree with Athos. I didn't comment on the post in bandwidth, because as my dad said if you can't say owt nice say nowt.

    I liked your posts for saying what you think, bubblesmcgrath and Athos although I totally disagree. And obviously there is no correct or incorrect response, yours or mine.

    I did genuinely think people would like it as much as I do and so assumed no one had seen it rather than were being polite! A lesson for me :)
