PARIS, France (The Adobo Chronicles, Paris Bureau)- The big news this week is not about the museum visitor who ate the fresh banana in Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan artwork displayed at a museum in Seoul, South Korea. (The artwork consists of a ripe banana attached to a wall with duct tape). It reportedly costs $160,000.
Rather, our very own publisher at The Adobo Chronicles was invited to display his original artwork at the Louvre museum in Paris, France. Our publisher’s artwork features a Chinese eggplant attached to a canvas with white tape. He was offered $200,000 to display at the museum, plus free roundtrip ticket at hotel accommodation to attend the opening of the exhibit.
Not bad. Congratulations, boss!
