The Existentialist

This morning at 6am about 100 fearless souls responded to an add in the
local rag from our "Artist-in-Residence", Andrew Baines
Andrew was looking to create a piece of living art on Cottesloe beach -
Based on his painting "The Existentialist" he asked people to turn up
wearing a business suit, and bring a black umbrella, they would be
provided with a bowler hat and he also added that they would be getting
wet - It was a spectacular sight of these odd people in a bizarre
situation just staring out to sea as the sun came up behind them. He
also got a group of the girls to recreate their own version of his
painting.Andrew is in the photo taking pictures to use as references for more of
his paintings.Check out Andrews work at his website
[url][/url] there's some really great
paintings there.

Jack has been painting these for years, and has been massively popular, slated by the 'art' critics of course...wikipedia

I think the Baines paintings lean more towards surrealism, and the Vetriano towards realism... but they are similar

i love that there were enough game people to make this possible - they deserve a big virtual pat on the back from everyone.
