Wim Delvoye Artist Research

Image

Wim Delvoye is a Belgian neo-conceptual artist he lived in Beligum until his art was made illegal so he now lives and works in China. He owns a pig farm on which he tattoos pigs with religious images, various Disney characters and many other things. His work is said to always be shocking. People may buy his art alive, skinned or stuffed. His work caused an uproar amongst animal rights activists as it is deemed a  vile act of animal cruelty. I have chosen to use Delvoye as his work shows just how far people will go for fashion and money and the disgusting things people are willing to do.
