Greece Bailout Graffiti Nein

Protests aren’t just limited to demonstrations […] Some have taken a quiet yet bold and defiant stance, using enormous and pointed pieces of street art to vent their frustration with the EU and Greek government. The pieces range from murals on partially collapsed buildings to sweeping wheat pastes spanning multiple building stories. In bright color and striking drawings, they demonstrate the difficulties facing the Greek people.

Playing pareidolia with Freud…

Sigmund Freud vulture


     This is the shape of a vulture that Sigmund Freud, playing “pareidolia” without knowing it, found in Leonardo da Vinci’s oil painting “The Virgin and Child with St. Anne” (1503-1519).

     This vulture, that Sigmund Freud guessed was hidden in the folds of the garment of the Virgin, was the center of his speculations about Leonardo da Vinci’s alleged homosexuality and views on women in his book Leonardo da Vinci and a memory of his childhood (1910).

     If the vulture revealed anything, it was only about Freud’s personal obsessions. I’ve just found some other interesting shapes, highlighted in my latest work “Sigmund Freud and a memory of his elephants”. You will see just a few of them, solutions are innumerable…!

little mouse eric bourdon


…even this little piece of cheese !

     This is an improvised painting, its drawing was inspired by a doodle on the cover of You Deserve Nothing, a 2011 novel by the American writer Alexander Maksik. It could be an allegory about the rich accumulating unnecessary goods while refusing the poor (the grey mouse) to feed themselves. The bird could be a state agent. A scenario among others…

     UPDATE : Take a look at the step-by-step creation of : You dirty rat deserve nothing (the new title!), along with an other improvised drawing, and an other story, created from the same doodle…
