Considering the success of Terry Border‘s humorous art of Bent Objects, I’ve decided it deserves further attention. This post is dedicated to a project that didn’t receive so much attention as Bent Objects, project entitled Really Bent.
For those who haven’t heard yet, Terry Border is a Greenwood based artist, who makes a living of a really eccentric and bizarre art: he photographs everyday objects in unusual scenarios.
The fact that Terry Border’s talent is both a blessing and a curse is no secret to anyone, nor the one that his humor is a bit weird and disturbing. Even the artist himself admits that his humor is a little twisted.
Really Bent is the “the more graphic, black sheep cousin of Bent Objects”, in other words, more scandalous scenarios, which were kept away from the original blog not to scare less open-minded visitors. Too bad the blog wasn’t updated for some time, or maybe the artist started publishing everything on the original blog.
Regular visitors of the artist’s blog had the chance to find out that some masterpieces are left behind intentionally by the artist. What happens to them? Not even Terry Border knows. I’m curious however who would adopt those Really Bent Objects, supposing they were left behind by mistake.
I really admire the fact that the artist has the courage to put his name on these creations and really enjoys doing it. It’s what makes him and his work so original.
Anyway, the stories behind the pictures are so hilarious, it’s a pity not sharing them with you. Enjoy and amuse yourself! Which one really cracks you up?
