Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Noses Blog: Turning The Ordinary Into The Extraordinary
The word extraordinary describes objects or ideas that are beyond what is usual or commonplace. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Noses blog features images that transform everyday pictures of celebrity individuals by applying the trademark bandana and mask of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon characters to each person’s nose. Looking at these pictures with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle headbands on, a viewer’s first thought may be, how can that be art? A person with average computer skills could probably replicate these images on this blog. The ease at which these images are produced does not make them any less creative, however. This artist has transformed ordinary pictures into creative artwork. Art should make you feel something, whether that is disgust, happiness, anger, or any other emotion; this work does exactly that. The viewer should determine which feeling that is for them. Silly? Maybe. An artistic statement that makes one stop and think? Definitely. These images combined with humorous commentary on the blog combine to produce a thought-provoking artistic vision.
