Fair enough. We love the use of Caravaggios, Boteros and Albrecht Dürer paintings emblazoned with sexy one-liners.
“I love art history and I love painting,” says @drugowl. “I thought, Why not give art history some captions about sex, lies, love, and insecurity? Museums and public spaces should be occupied for the enjoyment of its people, we are the people.”
