Interesting Situations

Spider-Man snorting cocaine. Catwoman, Robin, & Batman threesome. Suicidal Spider-Man. Spider-Man & Batman hand-cuffed. Wonderwoman & wonder-hands. Italian artist Giuseppe Veneziano has a new exhibition of art on display. And it does seem to be having fun with a bunch of familiar supehero icons.

I've seen this; it's called Sheezyart.

Actually, that's unfair. When I see it on the internet, it's usually self-taught from manga and/or Don Bluth movies, whereas this guy is a good painter.

Not a big fan of his style, but this one tickled my funny bone.

Spiderman is a foodie. Who knew?

If Spiderman was suicidal, wouldn't the obvious method be to hang himself on his webbing?

That reminds me of the After Hours videos, which are so much better than any of the superhero films I've seen yet.

I only disappointment with his portfolio is the lack of Superman.

Wonder Woman does not wear her crown in the bath. Don't ask me how I know this.

Brings to mind Mark Chamberlain's 'Batman and Robin' paintings (NSFW).

You are indeed correct and here is proof. [NSFW]

For some reason the coke doing Spider Man looks to me like it's not Peter Parker under the mask, but Grant Morrison. I guess it's the nose and the skinny face.

(Weird, because Spider Man is a character that Morrison would probably be useless at writing. )

I think "suicidal spiderman" was actually assassinated by Charlotte Corday.

Just rephrase this a bit. "because Spider Man is a useless character". There we go.

It would help if the painting style wasn't so horrible or the ideas so weak.

I saw this on the ONTD (celeb gossipy community) the other day, and it was funny because most people were shocked and offended by things like Pink Panther anal sex and I just considered it 100% inoffensive and a little boring in most cases. The internet has just completely ruined my ability to be shocked by anything, I think.

Catwoman, Robin, & Batman threesome


I am disappointed by that picture.

I think I'd really like a print of La passione del ragno for my kitchen.

You know, if the Eath expanded fast enough it could explain this whole gravity dealio as well - nothing actually falls, the ground is just expanding to meet it.

Fan fiction comes in many guises. We must be constantly vigilant.

Of his non-superhero related work, I enjoy: Pink Panther Crucifixion.

The Terrific Siamese Human Knot made a huge impression on me when I was little.

Isabel Samaras works this same vein, with (I think) rather better results, although, to be fair, she is more working 60s/70s icons than specifically superheroes.

I see you've been reading the daily newspaper strip.

Oh man, I was just saying the same thing the other day over coffee with Tubgirl.

Talentless hack paints comic book icons in debased situations. *yawn*

I like the Isabel Samaras paintings quite a bit better. The concept has been done and the execution's not that great. Or maybe I've just been seeing too much Rule 34 fanart lately.

(Not to rag on the post; not everyone has my artistic tastes.)

BTW, gravity is an illusion. Earth just sucks.

There is a sameness to these images.

No. No, he's not. Plus what Scoo said.

That's not quite fair. Half of them are debased, and half of them are references to other famous paintings or sculptures.

Talentless hack, though, there you're onto something.

is it the poor quality of these paintings that I hate, or is it the poor concepts? GOD I JUST CAN'T PICK ONE!
posted by shmegegge at 10:25 PM on August 7, 2010


This one is based on a photo by Andres Serrano, if anyone cares. And yes, this concept is pretty played . . . .

The Jeff Koons reference made me chuckle.
