Daniel Edwards, the NYC-based sculptor behind the dead Paris Hilton and doggie birthin’ Britney Spears has just released a new bronze vulgarity via New York’s Cory Allen Contemporary Art gallery. Unlike his last Bieber-themed meh-ness, Allegory of a Teen Sex Symbol (Justin Bieber) is just super… disgusting and great. Because Bieber is a Sylvester dick with Tweety Bird balls.
Hide your kids.
Start the rants.
Daniel Edwards is ready:
It would be naive and hypocritical for anyone to be offended by this simple sculpture, yet be apathetic towards the plethora of images to which they subject themselves on a daily basis. I stand by the work.
The gallery contextualizes:
Allegory of a Teen Sex Symbol (Justin Bieber) shows a symbolic representation, in a manner inspired by renaissance painter Giuseppe Acrimboldo’s portraits created from assemblages of fruit, and groupie Cynthia Plaster Caster’s famous series of plaster casts of 60s rock stars.
Someday is now, breeders.
