Art History from a Badass Motherf***r

Can I tell you guys a secret? I love art! Shocking, right? In fact I don't just love art, I really love art history. If for whatever reason you feel like having a lengthy conversation about "Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time" or Etruscan tombs, HIT ME UP! I'm all about it!

Meet Youtube dude HennesyYoungman, who has a series called ART THOUGHTZ where he lays down certain concepts found in art. Um, they are AMAZING. The episode where he compares performance artist Beuys to Jay-Z is too brilliant. Not to mention when he talks about Bruce Nauman and how to avoid making art like he does. It's so good!

Ah the Bruce Nauman one is dead accurate (and the "walking like a peacock on MDMA" line is the best ever). I think I like this guy.
