Nothing Like Screaming in Agony While You Paint
Here’s a bit of trivia. Sometimes I play Bob Ross’ Joy of Painting in the background while I blog. This is like the opposite, more hellish version of that. Fucking hilarious though.
Inspired by Bob Ross-style instructional television programs, the Seoul-based artist says “the theme of this video is the existential nature of contemporary art (and culture) as well as of artists.” Characteristic of Beom’s deadpan humor, the narrator’s demonstration shows how to apply paint while engaged in “a long scream that sounds like when you’re hurt”; “a scream induced by psychological pain”; and “a more pained, wronged, and regretful scream.”
Ay man, sometimes you need a good wailing session, or a gimmick lol.
