!! OMG, Tom Daley strips down and transforms into a Shark !!

…ehem…for Sea World unfortunately. Funded by EEEEEVVVILL!

British diver Tom Daley stripped down and was transformed into a shark in an effort to raise awareness about the dangers that sharks face in the wild, but his partnership with Sea World is resulting in some backlash.

Uh, Tom should burn his speedo in protest of animal cruelty! Let’s start the Facebook petition!

!! OMG, from the utterly TACK! files: Charles Saatchi sells painting of himself strangling Nigella Lawson !!

Charles Saatchi, the British advertising tycoon who received a police caution for choking out his wife Nigella Lawson in public at Scott’s restaurant in London — has decided to re-write the book of absolute class and gentlemanly-ness by selling a painting of the incident for £10,000!

SaatchiArt.com, which is closely connected to his gallery in London, is selling the artworks at prices ranging from £150 into thousands.
Anyone can upload their work to receive 70 per cent of the asking price, while the site receives 30 per cent commission. Mr Saatchi stands to gain from the sale of the works, as he is a minority shareholder in Saatchi Art.
“Would it have been a better story if I had censored artists whose work might be personally disobliging?” Saatchi told the Mail on Sunday.
The chief curator of SaatchiArt, Rebecca Wilson, said it did not believe in censorship unless the material is “pornographic or incites racial hatred”. Violence against women, on the other hand? Totally cool.

Becca! GURL! You know, sometimes art people really need to take the coke spoons out of their noses and remember that certain shit just ain’t cute!

!! OMG, the most magical place on Earth: José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros remixes classic horror icons and Disney together for new exhibition !!

Artist José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros‘ new show DisHollywood combines classic movie icons and Disney fairytales and reimagines them in a dark (and likely more realistic way) that questions their fairy-tale endings. From José‘s gallery:

DisHollywood is a barometer for measuring our tolerance and acceptance levels; a new way of observing the “happy ending” that trumpets the time of equality is now. In contrast to the baroque fantasy implied by the original, idealized presentaion of these characters, a new context of social vulnerability shows the darker side of our contemporary society.

Check out the rest of the painting after the jump! Which one’s your favourite?

!! OMG, more human than human: Artist creates a gorgeous, 35 minute watercolour treatment of ‘Blade Runner’ !!

I can’t even pay attention long enough to remember that I put a frozen pizza in the oven a half hour ago, before burning it to ashes much less focus long enough to create 12,597 hand-painted aquarelle paintings to form a beautiful short film…
Swedish artist, Anders Ramsell however is ontop of their shit, and created a very involved 35 minute version of Blade Runner, made entirely from watercolour paintings. From Anders’ Youtube page:

Each painting is approximately 1,5*3cm in size. Together they form my 35 minute long paraphrase on the motion picture Blade Runner (1982) by Ridley Scott.

Incredible. Check out the clip above!
