WPC: Life Dresses Like Art in Holland’s Art Museums

In Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art, I often wondered if the museum goers dressed specifically for the occasion!

It all started with a room-sized painting of blue plaid. As I wondered who would want a huge painting of a piece of plaid fabric I glanced up and there were three guys around me wearing variations of blue plaid. It was very surreal!

Unfortunately the third ‘Blue Plaid Man’ got caught up in the embrace of a girlfriend and I didn’t have the guts to drag him back into the gallery. So here are only two ‘Blue Plaid Men’ photoshopped into the painting.

I was tempted to make this lady’s striped sweater in the same colours as the painting (and I still might)…Amsterdam's Contemporary Art Museum with my 'Vivid Stripes' My ‘Sketchy Mikey’ photo next to a piece of art that inspired it.
