Artist Paints Lovely Portrait of Mark Zuckerberg, Using His Own Feces

The Facebook CEO is, again, the subject of Brooklyn-based KATSU's art

It's come to the point where anything is referred to as art these days, which has paved the way for experimental curators and would-be artists who look forward to events like Toronto's Nuit Blanche to display their eclectic forms of expression, whether it's a bunch of empty clothes hangers meant to signify loneliness, or a collection of light bulbs in the shape of a triangle.

And then you have those actual illustrators and animators looking to defy the genre of art by finding new mediums to use on the canvas, from charcoal, to lady's lipstick.......to shit.

Concerning the latter, a Brooklyn-based artist and hacker known as KATSU has used his own fecal matter to create a portrait of Facebook CEO and head honcho Mark Zuckerberg.

And to top things off, the painting actually isn't shitty at all - forgive my pun - but rather quite easy on the eyes! Though on the nose, I'm not so sure. In any event, I really hope KATSU thoroughy washed his hands after framing what's affectionately being referred to as 'Zuckerpoo'.

The pooptrait is currently on display at New York's The Hole (how fitting), and is part of the experimental artist's first exhibition called "Remember the Future."

If you're wondering if KATSU has some sort of beef with Zuckerberg that he envisions him as some sort of shit man, or that he wants to present him as a shitty guy, then you are correct. In fact, this even isn't the first time he's expressed his dislike of Zucks through art. In April of 2013, KATSU plastered photos of Zucks with a black eye across the Big Apple.

In an interview with Gizmodo, he had explained that he didn't appreciate how Facebook handles user data. Guess he thought it was pretty shitty of them. Okay, I'm done.

Regarding his recent form of pooptastic expression, KATSU explained that "Mark is Mark. He's this mutation, this gross aspiration everyone idolizes. His face has reach. He deserves to be ridiculed."

And how else to do so but paint his smiling portrait out of pooh!? Not like you can paint canvases with urine.
