It's by Andres Serrano and the name is Piss Christ. The yellow stuff you see is the artists own piss. Fantastic, right?



Actually, I found that rather tasteless... on more than one level. In my very humble opinion, I wouldnt even call that art.


...perception of art is subjective, but I agree with you here. This one looks rather tasteless.

this is revolting..I'm not agree with this kind of ''art''.It's about respect for the art and for God even if we belive in him or not. :|

I'd say it's art.

He's expressing himself in a visual way, so it's art. If he hates Jesus/God, he should express those feelings in whatever way he wants too, within reason.

I wouldn't say that it was good.

I have to agree with MySanity, even tho we might not like it it still is a form of art. Contemporary art for example makes no sense to me (real shit on display etc) but apparently it's still art nonetheless. From wiki the meaning of word art "Art refers to a diverse range of human activities, creations, and expressions that are appealing to the senses or emotions of a human individual."

I find the work in question full of symbols... the "light"/piss falling on the cross, when you first look at it you have the impression it's all about divine light... it falls from above yet the gesture is shameless... may refer to God's indifference towards Jesus' pain... but in the same time the artist shows his disapproval towards Christianity, he's aggressive in his act, he wants to shock.... but without the title we could say he's somewhat subtle in his act.

I don't like the whole idea and I'm not even a Christian... but I have to admit I can find the meaning in it all.

Well, if I hadn't known the yellow stuff was piss I would have found it a rather interesting photo... but since I'm aware of it it's just plain revolting. And the concept of piss and bodily fluids in "art" is worn out, it doesn't even have any shock value.
(On second thought, apart from when Nattefrost of Carpathian Forest smeared himself with his own feces for a photo shoot with Pete Beste... *looks for the puking smiley in vain*. Ok, I'll shut up now.) :sealed:

Just a quick mention of "Piss Jesus" again (sorry!). I think it's the title that lets it down. I think it shows that the artist just wanted to aggravate people, rather than make anything meaningful. Vying for attention with "shock value" is lazy and not a great quality for an artist, imo.

I love his works too. McQueen is one of the most talented and provocative artists in the whole fashion scene since 90s. :)
