Basik goes meme


Haha, wow. At first glance, this piece by Basik in Rimini, Italy might appear to be a beautiful painting of two hands with a heptagon in between the hands. But, particularly keeping in mind the “CX” in the middle of the heptagon, see if it reminds you of anything a bit less nice to look at.

The piece, titled Goatse is a reference to the meme (don’t worry, that’s just a link to Wikipedia), a disgusting/super not safe for work shock image that has been floating around the web since the late 1990’s. It’s one of the more disturbing non-violent images on the internet. I’m not sure what to think about this wall, but this seemed worth sharing.
