haven't seen the vid. But from the pics I'd say, this guy did pretty well.
he sure knows how to use classic monochrome watercolors.
sorry, I just can't buy these beershit-pics. ;-))
But look out for a novel by SERGE GAINSBOURG
: 'Eugene Sokolov
It's about a painter who can't hold his farts and manages to make money out of this desease: Everytime he farts, his lines get scrape and thus he creates a new form of 'abstract painting'. Later he puts paper between his cheeks right after a shit and sells these 'paintings' (comes close to your idea, eh?). His style is becoming really 'hip' in the art-scene and he's becoming a star. Of course, at the end he dies of a kind of colon desease or something.
Very funny and cynical. Gainsbourg said, it was a parable on the arts-business.
