Insensitive Artistic Inspiration

Rihanna’s police photo with her face swollen and bruised from Chris Brown’s alleged attack has circulated the Internet for weeks. Now pop artist Shaim Ibrahim has drawn a series of portraits based on the photo for no apparent purpose.

Ibrahim tells E! Magazine Online: “I thought the bruises in the police photo were interesting shapes to draw. And it was cool to color them pink and blue. Those are two of my favorite colors.”

And when asked about the meaning for his piece, he stated, “There is no message to any of my art. It’s meant to look cool hanging on your wall and that’s it! I’m not into deep meanings.”

To each his own, but I’m not for opportunistic art that goes all Andy Warhol on a famed pop artist’s brutally battered face.
