IN MALAYSIA, YOU ARE CALLED A 'BLUR QUEEN' OR 'BLUR' (IF YOU ARE NOT A FEMALE OR FLAMING FAGGOT) IF YOUR SPEECH, THOUGHTS OR WITS ARE NOT RAZOR SHARP OR YOU GET THE JOKE THE NEXT MORNING BUT NEW YORK ARTIST BEN SCHONZEIT HAS TAKEN 'BLUR' TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.
All the way from RM 50,000 to RM 250,000!
But well worth it for I clearly foresee his ingeniously and tongue-in-chic blurry paintings will escalate in value.
His out of focus paintings are realistically rendered but you will still have a hard time trying to make them out. Viewing a Ben Schonzeit painting is like me looking at my environs each morning before I put on my contact lenses!
Not being blind, I know my surroundings and everything remains familiar despite my short-sightedness. Only when I put on my glasses or lenses does everything fall back into place! Perhaps one should view Ben Schonzeit's paintings with reading glasses!
