Guernicow

There was as much fun in finding this friggin cow as there was in interrupting people eating to photograph it. Guernicow was designed by artist Jo Taylor for the Margaret River CowParade and can be found mingling with the patrons of Gnarabar.

Jo Taylor – Inspired by Picasso’s habit of moving limbs and adding bits in unusual places, rather than the depiction of the civil war destruction of Guernica.

Oh Clumsy Me

Remember Picasso’s $143 million work called The Actor? Hmm, well it just got a little smaller after a woman lost her balance and put a 15cm vertical tear in it. Whoopsie friggin daisy. The art lover was attending an art class at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art when she tripped right into the masterpiece. Awkward. Hmm, no word on whether she finished her lesson.
