Meet Milo Moire. She is a performance artist who strips naked and squeezes paint filled eggs out of her vagina onto canvas. In case you missed the symbolism, it’s a nod to motherhood because giving birth is creating art with our bodies. Clearly she never gave birth vaginally and projectile pooped all over the place in the process. I swear you can’t make this stuff up. Watch. (WARNING: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME)
Wouldn’t it be easier just to use a paint brush? Maybe I’m unsophisticated, but that chick is whack. And crude. And her art is certainly no ode to motherhood. You want to give a glorious nod to all the moms in the world? Nestle a watermelon full of paint up your hoo-ha, keep it there for 40 weeks, then squeeze it out and take it everywhere you go (including the toilet) for the next 18 years. I’m not a fan of performance art, but that would impress me.
If Milo Moire isn’t enough for you, meet Sarah Levy. Unlike Milo, whose only discernible talent appears to be the art of the kegel, Sarah actually is a bonafide creative artist. Check out some of her work.
Sarah Levy claims to be a socialist feminist, which apparently is a thing, and what inspires her art. Okay. That’s cool. Anyway, Sarah’s latest piece – “Whatever” – is a portrait of Donald Trump. Check it out.
Not bad. You’ve heard of oil on canvas, right? This isn’t that. This is menses on canvas. Seriously. Ms. Levy used her own menstrual blood to paint it with (I hope you’re sitting down) a used tampon. Yep.
Doesn’t anyone use a paintbrush anymore?
