This is a challengestill open
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.

Dearest Lonvig,

I recently stumbled upon your art after reading a reply you had written to a 'User C'. I am not an art critic nor am I a connoisseur of art I simply enjoy good art. I appreciate a large amount of work is required to produce any form of art however my perception has now been altered, After looking on your website at your section entitled 'Happy Days' I found myself pondering your influences and inspiration especially whilst looking at two pieces in particular 'hurt soul' and 'soul hurting still' these pieces from my perception were done when you were in a good mood not meant to be reflections of what is felt whilst experiencing 'Happy days', Once I had decided this must be the case I looked on your pictures in this section (Yes pictures) are quite possibly the worst collection of crap in the world ever, I am quite sure that if you gave a computer to a 5 year old child and showed them the rectangle tool in Paint they could also create "art" like yours!

In closing your art sucks! Big time, it sucks more than a million dysons! (and they don’t lose suction, ever!) I know you will come up with some smart arse comment along the lines of your first reply stating such rubbish like 'I am doing it "My Way" and I have people who like (even love) my work' and I am sure you do! There is an old saying 'a fool and his money are easily parted' congratulations Lonvig on proving it correct.

Dear User C,

I'm not obsessed by my web site, but of course I have an obligation to ensure it functions properly. There are 15,512,865 views a year - based on the average of 42,501 per day from last week.
People in Denmark don't say it's crap. Not because they are polite, but because Danes love people that do something different and stick to it.
Dear user C, now you have to be careful about your blood pressure. Take a deep breath.
Peter Alexandrof from Noosa Gallery in Queensland, Australia has reviewed submissions from “leading artists around the world” and he has selected 10 world artists for the "10 world artists show 2005/2006". One of them was me. Are you still there, User C? Because now it comes: One of the works he selected was "challenge":

"challenge" by Asbjorn Lonvig
Acrylic on canvas
201 x 139 cm, 79.2 x 54.8 inches
Inspired by Alexander Dumas

Two lines!!!!!
Crap, crap, crap, crap......

I know it's against the rules as it's a true photo, unshopped as it were, but this is something I saw on holiday in Madeira recently.

click for the same size ....
