Stunning original artwork, submitted by renowned, avid art collector Blake C’lamato out of Minnesota. The artist has a one-name moniker, Bug (really).
This one is titled ‘Monkey Dancing in Banana Smush.’ Circa 2005, Minnesota in origin. I didn’t make any of that up. This painting has been around for nearly ten years, and that has always been the title. This colorful story on the painting from Blake, the collector:
“Here is my favorite painting of all time. I was recently asked the question, ‘if my house was on fire and I could only take one item with me, what would it be?’
And my answer was this painting.
Apparently, the correct answer was ‘the house’.”
[That’s really funny, if you know Blake!]
One can’t help but see the similarities to Dali’s surrealist period. We are expecting some great work out of Bug over the next few decades as he continues to develop his skills. Perhaps a cubist or post-minimalist style will emerge after Bug finishes junior high school.
