Ready for another Tate Collective: Makeup and Art day? This week watch artist @designdain create a look inspired by Piero Manzoni’s ‘Artist’s Shit’. ⠀ ⠀ “Edgar Allen Poe wisely stated:⠀ ⠀ ‘Music, when combined with a pleasurable idea, is poetry. Music without the idea is simply music.⠀ When it comes to art, I feel the same.’⠀ ⠀ In my work, I always strive for quality over quantity and the difference between both is the presence, or absence, of a unique idea. This is why I chose Piero Manzoni’s “Merda d’Artista” as my inspiration for the Tate Collective project. As the godfather of conceptual art, being able to sell one’s poo for the price of gold is both brilliant as it is hilarious. And as my artist mother always advised me: art and its artist should always keep a sense of humor. My work here is both a homage to Manzoni, as it is a representation of the many brain fart ideas forever locked up inside my head that will never see the light of day.“ – Dain ✨ Check out our IGTV to see Dain’s work in action. . .
