Pricasso Paints With His Peen

Anyone who thinks painting is dead has clearly not been introduced to Australian artist Tim Patch, who goes by the name Pricasso. He paints portraits, landscapes, nudes, and sexual fare using his peen as his paintbrush. “I dip it in the paint and then apply it to the canvas,” he says. “I videotape all my work because sometimes people don’t believe me.” Pricasso will paint your portrait from a photo for $75, and he also goes to parties, where he’ll paint revelers for $50 to $100 a piece. Fascinating tidbit: he doesn’t paint on canvas, simply because it’s too abrasive. [The Luxury Spot]
