Man Creates Weird Self Portraits, Calls It Art

New Yorker David Henry creates extremely weird, borderline-insane self portraits, covering himself with seemingly random items. We are a bit confused, is this art or not? Please let us know your opinion in comments!

  1. Why not call it art? It’s very creative. I’ve seen weirder and more questionable stuff called art.

  2. If it’s true that the best artists are misunderstood, this guy must be a genius because I have no clue as to what he’s trying to say.

  3. If you can sell a banana with duct tape got labelled art, then this must also qualify.

  4. I find this uncanny and kind of disgusting, at the same time it´s utterly hilarious and some creations made me laugh. I guess I like it.

  5. Good range of subjects, carefully composed. The face parts are icing on the cake.

  6. This guy uses his face and found objects as a medium to display various aspects of his personality in an abstract way. Definitely art, and a creative form at that! Love it!

  7. This is absolutely brilliant, can’t stop laughing, and that is what art is supposed to do, invoke a reaction.

  8. I truly don’t understand the comment about „a pathetic cry for help“. I am an artist and all that I ever do is pathetically crying for help. In fact the most famous artists in the 20th century, if not in all other eras, are known, respected and acknowledged for their pathetic cry for help.
    And about his self-centered self portraits, come on… is there any artist in art-history who wasn’t self-centered?

  9. I hope that wherever this guy is from that they have free medicare and that he can get some professional help for whatever causes this.

  10. Of course this is ART ! This is very creative, and at the same time, funny, hilarious and entertaining. And that is what ART is about, like it or not. This guy is a genius in his own style.

  11. wow! I love it, it’s a great way of expressing oneself and bringing out creativity!!

  12. I’d like to point out that (1) many of his works are mobile, and these still frames don’t do them justice and (2) he is successfully selling NFTs of these works for $3K-$4K apiece.
