I just found out that Margaret Keane died. She was a true inspiration to us all, and the movie Big Eyes is one of my favourite films. https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2022/jun/29/margaret-keane-big-eyes-artist-dies

Not sure if you've heard about the mona Lisa being smeared with cake. I thought it was fake at first as well. But here's the link to prove it https://news.sky.com/story/mona-lisa-attacked-with-cake-by-man-dressed-as-old-lady-in-wheelchair-12624074 An anti-global warming protester attempted to break the glass protecting the world's most famous painting before smearing cream on it. In a show of anti-global warming protest, a man dressed as an elderly woman smeared cake across the Mona Lisa. As part of a climate change publicity stunt, the Louvre visitor smeared cream on the painting's surface before attempting to smash the glass guarding the world's most famous artwork. He then jumped out of the wheelchair he was sitting in and proceeded to smash the glass. "The man tried to smash the glass protecting the painting, and – when it didn't break –smeared a cake across its surface," an investigation source said. "After leaping from his wheelchair, he did not injure anyone. Everyone could see that he was a man posing as an elderly lady." After the painting was vandalised, a Louvre employee could be seen cleaning the glass. He then smeared cake on the glass and threw roses everywhere before he was tackled by security. The guy said he did it because artists need to apparently focus more on the environment. Now... I'm a primary environmental artist, hell, I even published a book as part of an art project about helping the environment through art. But the way I see it, thinking about the earth doesn't mean destroying its history. What do you guys think? Is it a good way for him to get attention for his cause, or was he reckless with it.
