Default Pawła Kuczyńskiego Fantastic artwork.

Like all art not all of it will be for everyone but I loved many of these.

Yes many of these have a political message but let's keep the politics in P&N, if you hate them just say so and let's not start a P&N thread.

The "workers" here also mimic farmers in China planting their yearly rice crop. One plants the seeds that will grow into next years harvest. Perhaps the presents they are "giving" are the seeds of next years economic harvest. So to speak.

i like the one with the butcher and the cat. this is the power of good art, to show realities of life that our mode of thinking clouds over. in the instance of high end pet food, how we put the cat on a pedestal while many other animals are chopped up for its food.

Okay. I lied. Some do have idealism behind it. But the WTF factor ones are funny. Like the serpent tits. That is priceless.

hehe, you just validated it as art, and you may not even realize it.

some of it is obnoxious, yes (especially when seen all together) some of it is clever. I have no idea if it is intended to be obnoxious or not, but either way, that is an emotional response.

boom: success.
