DrJays.com Debate: Is this art or just plain wrong?
Sham Ibrahim created this painting based on TMZ‘s leaked photo of Rihanna‘s battered face.
You would hope that the L.A. based artist did it to bring awareness to domestic violence, but instead his reason was this:
“I thought the bruises in the police photo were interesting shapes to draw, and it was cool to color them pink and blue. Those are two of my favorite colors. There is no message to any of my art. It’s meant to look cool hanging on your wall and that’s it! I’m not into deep meanings.”
A traumatizing picture was taken at a crime scene, then leaked to the public…
I would think Rihanna would feel that hanging this in your home is more cruel than “cool”.
What do you think?
The painting is featured in the World of Wonder Storefront Gallery’s new group show, “Name That ‘Toon”, which opened Monday night in Hollywood.
