Rib painting….

Posted in ART, ART VIDEOS with tags , , , on October 4, 2010 by echostains

I wonder what our ancestors did with the bones from the animals they killed after they’d eaten them?  Just threw them in the dust to be found by us I suppose.  I suspect that if they painted with sticks they may have used the odd animal or even human bone as a drawing or painting tool.  We’ve seen how it’s possible to draw with almost anything – including Cheetos and MacDonald’s and other foods – here is another entertaining video by EclecticAsylumArt, – this time he’s painting with barbecued ribs….and making a fine job of it:) I  really enjoy watching artists paint (if you remember this particular artist also did Elvis with cheese puffs and Bette Davis in mascara!)   Not only do I like the finished art – I also enjoy watching this artist work deftly and with confidence with some very unusual media indeed:D

I’ve made this slide show because I was clearing my camera out and found all these pics.  All these places can be seen out and about in Manchester.  Featured sights we saw include the Northern quarter (a very Bohemian, up happening and buzzing part of the City centre), The Deansgate area, bits of artwork from Tib Street, the Keko Moku Bar which makes expensive but out of this world cocktails (try their Zombies and Mohitas if you dare:)  I’ve also put some unusual window displays in there:)
