Famous for his three dimensional chalk art on the streets of New York, as well as his dirty car window art in Boston central, Ernesto Evinstreme has embarked on a new artistic venture on the snow covered streets and walkways of Minneapolis.
Preferring to work on a cold and freshly powdered flat surface, Evinstreme has mastered the art of urine painting thanks in large part to a variety of spray attachments custom fit to his member. One directs the flow into a pin point outline tool, while another widens the flow to brush over larger areas of his temporary canvass.
"The interchangeability of tools really allows me to keep the creative juices flowing during composition", says Ernesto.
The results are, in a word, remarkable. Evinstreme's Mona Lisa was captivating, taking up the entire public gathering area in front of the federal building. Measuring 15 by 15 meters, the portrait is better seen from an elevated position like the top of the courthouse steps.
"Larger portraits are more difficult", says Evinstreme. "I usually have to take several breaks at the local pub and fuel up with a couple of pitchers of light lager and a diuretic or two, and then it's off to the races again."
Some critics don't care for the improvised street art, claiming that it's "piss poor". Another commented, "and when like did urinating in public become art, instead of a misdemeanor?"
"Stupid question", responded Evinstreme, "when it looks like the Mona Lisa".
