Patricia Piccinini takes her art to the skies, constructing a hot air balloon in the shape of a whale, in honour of Canberra’s (Australia’s Capital City) centenary. It cost approximately 300 dollars to design and build this hot air balloon, and Canberrans are very divided about what they call an ‘ugly waste of money.’
What do you think about it? Below we have also included some other images of Patricia’s work, to give you an understanding of where she is coming from as an artist – she is into mutational art, and often portrays humans as part animal, and vice versa.
