Appropriating Arm Candy: It’s Lazy, Sucker!

Sucker Louis Vuitton Chanel Gucci YSL

It’s getting boring blogging about “artists” who go the lazy route, and use designer logos and trademarks in their work.

I didn’t even blog about the “Fashion Weapons” by still life photographer Massimo Gammacurta, because I’d blogged about so many other artists who’ve done exactly… the… same… thing.  You know, take something violent and offensive like an electric chair or a bullet or a creepy looking dog… and wrap it all up in Louis Vuitton monogram, or quilted Chanel, or signature Dior or whatever.  It’s gotten so old.

But looks like the tactic worked for Massimo, cause now he’s doing logos in candy.  Like I’ve always said, appropriation:  it’s art for the lazy.
