Artist Travels To Scenic Locations Only To Paint The Pattern of His Own Shirt

Artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek and photographer Fabian Schubert offer a hilarious take on classic outdoor painting, a humorous series of photographs that show artist going to various scenic locations just to paint his own shirt. They started this project in 2009 and it’s still ongoing.

    Very Nice Art! Greetings from/Saudações de São Paulo, Brasil!

    You have a great sence of humour. However, after seeing ten of the same “landscapes”, the joke gets a bit worn.

    Love the work. I see a relationship between the clothes, patterns, and the landscape. there is no repeated shirts. maybe you can explore even at social places like cafes, schools, etc. keep it up

    At the least the artist is garnering attention.

    Extraordinary ability to capture the essence of time and place. I wait in great anticipation of further works. You are a truly gifted individual.

    Good compensation for his obvious lack of painting talent?

    Very strongly expressing what does it mean to be human on Planet Earth. We, humans, see nothing but ourselves, we are ego-extremist suicide bombers. (Respect goes to the few exceptions, of course.)

    Brilliant depiction of today’s mindset 😅

    This is a celebration of incompetence and mediocrity of people who lacks any special skill.

    What a wanker….sadly this shit passes as art in the eyes of some people……Art…as made by Giotto, Raphael, Michaelangelo,etc, etc…..what a dreadful world we have created….and this titwit………..what a complete egomaniac wanker…

    Trolling the arts artistically

    This is brilliant.
    Are these photographs drawing on dadaism?

  21. Jen June 17, 2019

    I just thought to myself….. Hmm. How do I look against the world or my surroundings? I thought it was clever! Fun make you think a little.

    That is hilarious.

    Oh dear you seem to have completely missed the point. These aren’t “a hilarious take on classic outdoor painting” they are a biting satire of modern social media (especially Instagram). All those people who travel the world and when they get there what do they photograph? Themselves (obscuring the amazing view).

  24. martha jane June 18, 2019

    Dan Marchant! Exactly what I was thinking (but you said it better than I would have.)

    This is hilarious. Screw the haters!

  26. Krist June 19, 2019

    thats weird and a complete waste of time. u can paint those patterns even inside your toilet. for a while i thought the shirt pattern is inspired by the scenic background! ughh!

    F U N N Y! Especially the comments

    Bunch of ******* commenting here that this is not art. Anything is art, it doesn’t have any definition you fools.

    I love the tongue in cheek audacity. Can’t people see it’s a joke???

    What’s with the hate people? I think it’s cute & the photographs are nice.

    People are so hyper-focused on the paintings themselves.

    Extremely Whimsical. Definitely Conceptual.
