I was walking around Bang Rak district of Bangkok yesterday when I came across this art studio. I know artists are often trying to be provocative and I guess this one did their work as it did catch my attention. But it wasn’t exactly something I really wanted my eyes to see – a man wearing women’s lingerie with his legs spread. What’s worse of course is that the man in question here is Adolf Hitler in Nazi uniform. This painting is so tasteless that I cannot stand to look at it. It should have been put on display in the toilets, not in the window near an international hotel where anyone can see it. Thais are very sensitive about Buddha images being used improperly, why can’t they see that their use of Hitler is equally as offensive to much of the world.
What do you think?
