bad public art

Could this be the worst piece of public art ever? We are sure that you can do worse, so open photoshop and post your monstrosities on the board. Bonus points if your local council displays your piece.

# Allow me to quote.......................
Dear User C,

Thank you again.
I can see on your language, that we have had a conversation before. You are constantly improving my English.
Allow me to quote from my web site - www.lonvig.dk - when you click on a highly visible button in the top of the main page - ATTENTION www.lonvig.dk/attention.htm
"MY WAY"
This web site presents my way of making art and design.
My view of art and design is controversial.
When I make drafts I use a pencil, a filling knife, a brush, a computer or something else.
What you see in this web site is made with one of these tools.
Many images on this web site and the online galleries I use are drafts not yet painted, printed, erected as sculptures or whatever the intention of the drafts might be.
A combination of "art on demand" and commissioned art work.
Genre: Colorful Simplicity.
People call me an artist or artist/designer - to keep it simple, I do so too.
I know that some people
don't like (..even disgust) me, my style, my tools and the way of promoting my art works.
I accept that.
And
I concentrate upon serving those who
accept (..even love) me, my style, my tools and my way of promoting my art works.

See artistic concept and copyrights, business concept and disclaimer, where I very clearly explain, how I work.

I am proud of doing it my way.

In the live art magazine Colorful News there is an editorial explaining the same ting: See www.lonvig.dk/colorful-news.htm#editorial

And let me give you an example of people who don't disgust my work - a new book by Parisian author Alain Joannes is titled "How to communicate through pictures" tells about the painting "Soul Hurting Still" sold to a customer in Spain.

Have a nice day.

Sincerely,
Asbjorn Lonvig

# Thank you so much.
Dear User C,

Thank you so much.
I did not quite understand why the number of hits on www.lonvig.dk/exhibition-sculptures.htm increased dramatically.
I found the reason.
Your post.
By the way MsPaint is far too advanced for Colorful Simplicity - the software I use is much more simple.
And.
I showed my draft of ""second to....none"
Aarhus, Denmark, metallic sculpture, 50 feet - which you so kindly have published - to people from the particular city.
They were exited.
They did not mention the word crap.
Thanks again.

Sincerely,
Asbjorn Lonvig

# Also not shopped, but too horrible not to share

This is in Palo Alto, California. It's a 6-foot-tall bronze statue which depicts a running rag doll. The doll's face is a shapeless blob with two enormous but unseeing eyes, no nose and no mouth. The doll's torso has been horribly distended by what I assume is the face of the child whose soul has been imprisoned within the doll's lifeless, but now unnaturally animated, cotton body. The face of the entombed child straining to burst out of its patchwork prison is gigantic, which only adds to the horrificness of the piece.
