A “vandal” has stepped in and taken artistic liberty with one of Banksy’s latest works and it’s kinda clever in a sophomoric sort of way. Local police in Kent, England say — without irony — that they are looking for the person who illegally drew a big penis on Banksy’s illegal piece, which originally depicted […]

“Whether it is a terrible sketch on a bar napkin or a beautiful painting on a canvas; a dick drawing is a dick drawing,” artist Alex Wong states on his Kickstarter page. Wong has one mission — to draw the world’s biggest dick. He’s asking for $100 dollars to complete the project. Each dollar will fund […]

Also, penis. Because isn’t it refreshing when a female ex-partner is being a predatory fame-seeker and has herself a gallery show comprised entirely out of her mediocre photographs of former lover and famous dead artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, hanging out all nude on her mattress, his junk flapping around in an air of casual intimacy and […]

An Icelandic history teacher named Sigurður Hjartarson was given a bull penis as a gag gift many years ago, and for whatever reason people had continued to give the man dicks as a joke. Some may say that perhaps things have gone a bit too far; through this massive accumulation of penises, Hjartarson felt the […]

Czech artist David Černý is playing the hits! With the parliamentary polls on the way in the Czech Republic this week, the public artist provocateur floated this gigantic purple Fuck You down the Vltava river today. They’re saying because he is anti-Communist but he’s hasn’t explicitly said he is anti-Communist per se, but if we try to explain what “leftist” or “rightist” means… TL;DR… […]

This is not what a feminist artist looks like. I am not in a habit of trashing a show before I see it, so I won’t trash the 2-day “EXPLICIT” exhibit at Morgan Avenue Underground in Bushwick this weekend. After reading this Vice profile however, it’s clear that there is an ethical and intellectual fail in […]

In the late 1880s, people called vaginas “horse-collars” and penises “love truncheons.” If the penis was big, however, they might call it a “kidney-wiper,” and if it was erect, “bit of stiff.” How do I know? These excellent, astoundingly detailed interactive timelines (spotted by our friends at Nerdcore) of the things we called our naughty […]

You may remember New York artist David Livingston from the time he hilariously dragged a giant, pink, soft, stuffed penis into the New Museum and the other time he hilariously dragged a giant, striped, soft, stuffed penis all over the Supreme Court steps. And now, here’s a brand spankin’ new thing he just uploaded to Vimeo: […]

“Are you having trouble understanding artists through their art? Understand them through their STUFF instead.” Art F City has an amazing fresh feature STUFF and this week, transgressive legend Genesis P-Orridge showed them STUFF. It includes a Bronze Lord Shiva, a Tibetan Thighbone Trumpet, a DREAMACHINE, loving memorabilia of Genesis’s beloved “Other Half” Lady Jaye and this amazing […]

There’s an article in the Sydney Morning Herald getting down to the “cock and balls” history of graffiti wherein a female writer/psychotherapist and female restoration society rep simplify the significance of “graffiti genitalia.” To them, it’s all for the lulz and haw-haws. It’s look-at-my-dick level of sexual rebellion. It’s boys-will-be-boys. WRONG […]
