This Hollywood t-shirt, based on the art of Maurizio Cattelan, will keep everyone guessing - does it or does it not feature the famous HOLLYWOOD sign?
Cattelan was born in Italy in 1960 and 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!
