Independence Fever: Show Us Your Tits!

All patriotic art tends to fall back on tired cliches, and Mexican patriotic art is no exception - indeed, it might be worse: much of it feels like bad bullfight art and bad 9/11 art got together and spawned. There's no shortage of bad art on display here in the cradle of Independence this month, including a show last week at the Galeria Municipal. We hardly knew where to begin, but this, we thought, was the best of the worst:


Our art critic is on sabbatical this semester, but as we read this, the heroes of Independence and the Revolution gave their lives so that an incredibly muscular, well-toned nun (Sor Juana, perhaps?) could break the chains of oppression and get herself a serious pair of C-cup implants. And for that, we have a five-day weekend now.

Update: Burro Hall Temporary Art Critic "acd" writes in to inform us that this painting is both bad and unoriginal, being a copy of "The New Democracy," by the Mexican muralist David Siquieros.

If you can't find better material than this to whack your willy to, then you are in serious need of lessons on the use of google for porn searches or a therapist.

it looks like a draw made by a 5 year old for school, a 5 year old fan of playboy I must add. Quite ugly it seems like the so called artist just re draw some old paintings together or maybe he actually paste them togheter next to that ugly trasvesti
