‘Tis the season for spoofs it seems. This impressive video — aptly named Art:21.5 — comes from artist Scoop Brancisco in Hawaii. Appearing as a paper bag-head, alien, robot, and Frankenstein’s monster, Scoop explains a number of works such as the iPot which, well, you need to watch the video to find out more. Scoop’s also created an imaginative, do-it-yourself adaptation of our opening graphics: he draws a white line by dragging a paint brush through what looks like powdered ice tea mix. Be sure to watch to the end for what could very well possibly be our new theme song! Could this be the best Art:21 spoof ever? Stills below.

    I’m a bit surprised how you found this video so soon, but thank you for posting it in your blog.

    I will keep up the good work, hoping to be featured in the “real” ART:21 someday in the future :)
