My bloody work of art!
OMG! That's blood! Derek said I cut myself just to bring my passion for art to the next level.(He was actually half asleep when he said this)
No! I am not a freak! and I am not mad enough to cut myself to do some bloody painting.
It actually started like this. I wanted to open a can of Heinz English Baked Beans and I didn't have a can opener, hence I used a Chinese Kitchen Knife to open it. In the process, I accidentally cut my finger and I went to squeeze the blood out of my finger and I started dripping it in patterns onto the sink and I thought it was quite artistic. Suddenly I thought drawing something with my blood would be cool, so I asked my housemate Andrew to lend me his sketching pad.
I just simply drew and the sudden thought of people using their blood to write in ancient chinese films struck me. So I wrote the chinese character "Blood" on the sketch pad.
You can still see the blood was still fresh when I took the picture.
Here is the finger that contributed to art.
I actually wanted to keep the blood paintings but my dad told me that the smell of blood attracts unwanted spirits so I asked Andrew to throw them away. Although the hard copy has already been sent to the waste dump, I still have these pictures to immortalise these wonderful pieces of art.
