Painting in a Sexual way: Alluring or Ridiculous?

MrSinister MrSinister
I found an artist named 'Pricasso' who paints with his penis. He does mostly portraits but does other works as well.

My girlfriend challenged me to try this, and I ended up painting this:



Decent? Odd? A full recap of the process is here, and I rather enjoyed doing it.

Do you think there is a niche for this sort of thing? Would you ever buy art where a penis was the paintbrush?

I've seen art made with the penis, the scrotum, the breasts, the vulva, the anus and even squirted out the anus, tear ducts, nose and mouth.

I wouldn't buy any of it.

...that's certainly interesting, and may I say very well done considering the 'brush' used for the painting.
Not too sure I'd actually buy something like that, although that would change depending on the subject matter of course.

It seems like it would be possibly fun to try doing.

Seems like more of a novelty than an artistic niche that would elicit a large audience.

I'm impressed and amused. If someone painted something that I really, really liked, I wouldn't really care what they used to create it---with a few exceptions, of course. Any gimmick that went into it would probably add to my enjoyment of the work, but it wouldn't be the driving force behind my purchase.

"I'm really envious of artistic people, wish I could draw something that didn't look like crap"

reads thread and now they can even do it with their wangs... "Now you just rubbing it in"

Haha, I posted about Pricasso a long time ago. I still think it's neat, even if it isn't something I'd buy.

I personally don't find it that great of an achievement. I'm not trying to rain on your parade, but you used your hand to manipulate your penis into working like a paintbrush. The guiding agent is still your hand. People could easily do the same, like using their hand to guide, for example, a toe to paint.

Now, if you did not use any guiding agent, and ONLY used your penis to dip in the paint, and then paint the entire picture using various degrees of flex/flacid/erectness, then I would be much more impressed.

I think it sounds like something I want to challenge my hubby too. I would do it to, but with my boobs!

Why is the link not working? I want to see!!

I think it is silly! But not necessarily in a bad way. However, I'm not really a fan of contemporary abstract art which is most of what i've seen

Haha I don't buy any artwork anyway but this is a cool idea. I would want to try out using a body part haha. It does look fun!

The piece itself isn't bad. I think the penis aspect is just a gimmick. Probably was fun to paint, though!

It isn't hot or silly. It's an artist's choice to paint in that method.

I'm going to assume most, if not all the posters here have little to no artistic background. It's like saying you know good or bad wine if you've never even tasted alcohol before. It's not fair to judge a work of art if you don't know what good art is to begin with.

The medium should have some bearing on the meaning of the work; instead of saying "that's hot, not,etc." it would be better to properly evaluate whether or not this piece is done skillfully, and if the subject matter has any bearing to the content. And this is approaching it in a very simplistic manner.

It would be incredibly useful to also evaluate why the artist used his penis; what statement was he trying to make? I don't really have an opinion on the matter yet, but as an art student, that's where I would start.

lol um, you're not too familiar with most of the art world, I'm assuming. There have been whole exhibits dedicated to artists painting with their menstrual blood.

I personally don't find it appealing.

Wouldn't you say that when the medium is so radically different it becomes part of the art itself, therefore does in fact lend some sort of meaning to it?

I haven't really been involved in anything related to the art world since college, but I had a whole course dedicated to the question of what art is and what qualities make a piece classified as art. A lot of it has to do with whether there is a quality of the sublime about it, but who decides that? In short, it's art if you think it is, not if you think it's not.

But let's be honest here. Painting with the penis? There is a reason for that, therefore has to be accounted for when you look for the meaning of the "art."

I think it's silly, but I also think there will always be a niche for things like that.

Penis art, breast art, pet footprints, and elephant trunks. If you can slap paint on, you can probably find someone to buy what you create. I think its kinda silly personally, but peoples taste can encompass so many different odd things that who are we to judge.
