“Great Art has dreadful manners. The greatest paintings grab you in a headlock, rough up your composure, and then proceed in short order to re-arrange your reality.”-Simon Schama

My thoughts; I think for sure art has bad manners, and it should take you violently and mess with your head. What's the point of creating something that isn't going to disturb somebody?

Artist Takes Every Drug Known to Man, Then Draws Self Portraits After Each

Artist Takes Every Drug Known to Man, Then Draws Self Portraits After Each | Amazing things | Scoop.it

Via Cultso:

 

This is all kinds of cool, and everything your mother told you not to do. Bryan Lewis Saunders is an artist from Washington D.C., not just any artist though. Saunders prefers to take a more unconventional approach to his artwork.

 

Arguably his most interesting project, entitled DRUGS is described as follows:

 

“After experiencing drastic changes in my environment, I looked for other experiences that might profoundly affect my perception of the self. So I devised another experiment where everyday I took a different drug and drew myself under the influence. Within weeks I became lethargic and suffered mild brain damage. I am still conducting this experiment but over greater lapses of time. I only take drugs that are given to me.”

 

Below, you can view a collection of portraits Saunders drew while under the influence of various substances ranging from cocaine, to marijuana, to DMT. Each portrait is an astonishing look into the mind of someone tweaked out on drugs, something that your eyes will surely appreciate...

Personal thoughts: People should never underestimate the still mind exanding effects of drugs and the effects on perception that shows in one's artwork.
