The exhibit titled Blow Job by Fernando de La Rocque will put many people's minds in the gutter. Nevertheless, it is not a dirty-minded art show. Instead, it revolves around a substance that is equally 'sinful.' The artworks featured in the exhibition have been created using marijuana smoke. The Brazilian artist has put together a series of protest-inspired smoke paintings that are incredibly captivating. He writes that "more important than freedom to smoke marijuana is the freedom to think about it and make art with it. Polemic issues divide opinions, forcing people to think and debate."

The pieces in the Blow Job by Fernando de La Rocque were created by blowing smoke onto stencils in the shape of controversial religious and political figures.
