Shit Art Fair is an unconventional and unauthorized art takeover recently set up in Turin by the guys behind Guerrilla Spam, during an intense week of art fairs and events involving the city.

This second installment at the Parco del Valentino’s tunnel comes with a good number of paste-ups featuring works of some of the finest Italian urban artists. The pieces will stand up as long as someone or aging (or both) will take ’em down I guess.

I’m proud to be part of this project with a portrait of Georg Baselitz. Contra Patrem is the latin for ‘against the father’ and refers to Baselitz’s famous quote: “I had always loved expressionist painting, like every European. In fact I admired it all the more because these were precisely the paintings despised by my father’s generation.”
