Video: Lush’s NYC Exhibition VandalisedPosted By Meisy Cheong | 28-Aug-2012
Controversial artist, Lush, opened his Shitty Drawings exhibition at NYC’s Klughaus Gallery over the weekend. There was nothing particularly out of the ordinary about this…until his work got vandalised on opening night. Just as notorious for his theatrics as he is for his provocative work, the first thought anyone would have is that the ‘vandal’ was in fact Lush himself.
According to both the gallery and artist, they were taken by surprise, stating the act was not a set-up on their part. 12oz Prophet report the artist responded by saying “Haters gonna hate… three shows in a row of stolen and destroyed work on each of the opening nights. I’m flattered, I’m sure the next one, someone will blow it up with a pipebomb or something.” Yeah, probs…
