Don’t Worry, Be Happy
Worried Guy by an anonymous artist is worring everyone who lays eyes on him. Rendered in shades of black and grey. The man’s hair, which looks like it could use a shampoo, is made of wires and houses a treasure of random pieces of paper and the ocassional staple pin.
The ‘guy’ rests his head against both his hand. His eyes are threatening and his frown unsightly. We couldn’t imagine another collection that this work might fit into, apart from the MOBA.
Worried Guy is housed in the Museum of Bad Art. It is part of the museum’s collection of Rainbow Art.
