comes this wonderful casting by Daniel Edwards (Reuters):

Prom queen of the dead? Guess Carl Jr.’s better pull those burger ads . . . .

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Sculptor Daniel Edwards thinks Paris Hilton makes a fine subject — as prom queen of the dead in what he says is a warning against drunken driving.

The artist has created a sculpture of the 26-year-old hotel heiress and socialite naked and dead, with cell phone in hand, legs spread and crowned with a tiara.

“The Paris Hilton Autopsy” is a statement about the dangers of drunk driving just as high school prom season rolls around, said Edwards, who also sculpted a giant head of Cuban President Fidel Castro and created a life-size nude of Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug.

Go figure . . .

  1. I still think that most of his target audience (teenage boys?) will prefer to get their celebutART fix from watching Une Nuit Dans Paris, and that video proved that buck nekked Britney is a much better piece.

    Chocolate jesus it ain’t.

  2. I’m no fan of celebrity but this is not good art. It’s just sensationalism for the sake of it.

    never known a real artist to dress like that either. he looks like he works in advertising

  3. Tres cool – someone else who’s heard of Gilbert and George! I like their taste in suits better too (not the birthday ones . . . .)

    Yeah, this guy probably would have tried claiming the Campbell Soup can as his original work if he thought he could get away with it.

  9. I think it’s only a matter of time before Britney runs over a photographer and kills ’em. What happened to that sweet old Britney we used to know and love?

  10. This guy is taking himself just a little too seriously, and what is he presenting here: yet again, more pop culture references. He’s not really doing anything original here – just cashing in on the names of the current big celebrities. I can’t give this artist much credibility.
