This Hollywood T-shirt based on the art of Maurizio Cattelan will keep everyone guessing - is it or is it not the famous Hollywood sign?
Cattelan, born in Italy in 1960, combines elements of surrealism, performance and satire in his work. For the 40th Venice Biennale in 2001, Cattelan erected a larger-than-life replica of the Hollywood sign over the largest city dump in Palermo, Sicily. He then flew a select group of Biennale attendees there to sip cocktails and enjoy the artwork.
Cattelan said of this piece: “I tried to overlap two opposite realities, Sicily and Hollywood: after all, images are just projections of desire, and I wanted to shade their boundaries. It might be a parody, but it’s also a tribute.” Make this shirt your tribute to Hollywood - or to Sicily!
