If Hitler Had Been a Hippy, How Happy Would We Be

If Hitler had been a Hippy, how happy would we be

British artists Jake and Dinos Chapman recently held a show titled “If Hitler had been a hippy, how happy would we be”. It consisted of a series of Adolf Hitler’s original watercolor paintings modified by the artists to include rainbows, psychedelic skies and smiley faces – thus making them much more interesting. This here is a great example of creation trough destruction.

There is more about the exhibition in The Times.

  1. Wow, Hitler was a way better artist than me. The question is, do I take art classes just to outdo Hitler or resign myself to that fact?

    I believe I have once seen a movie more-or-less on the subject “What if Hitler had become an artist instead”, with the title: “Max” ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0290210/ ) I have heard it was rather controversial, too.
