for Micael ...

LOL... Micael this is for you.

I just grabbed (cut&paste) the html coding from a LiveJournal post - I didn't check what actually posted in Blogger. I hadn't realized (until I read your comment) that I'd grabbed the "obsession" bit too... oops! Below is the subsequent obsession post...

We spent Sunday at the Art Gallery of Ontario . We spent the afternoon wandering around the galleries.

We discovered a great new artist with a campy, naughty, and brilliant- with a cheeky sense of humour and fabulous talent ... and well-aimed zingers at white European Christian interferences on Native American culture.

Kent Monkman, an artist of Cree ancestry who works with a variety of mediums, including painting, film/video, performance and installation, had several pieces in a AGO retrospective Remix: New Modernities in a Post-Indian World.

his art is so cheeky, campy, and "challenging the concept" - I adore it.

He now has me as a fangirl... poor guy *chuckle*
