Mister Jablow’s art is the best type of provocative. It forces one to reconsider preconceived notions, mostly about morality and cultural norms.
My favorite example of his work is:
Innocuous enough, until he takes it in a wondrously detailed direction:
Whether his work is a commentary on society, or simply a jab at things commonly thought of as banal, it serves the viewer a helping of introspection, and in doing so pointedly wets one’s appetite for more.
These absolutely surreal, yet realistic, sculptures are the reason I love art. Please visit Choi Xooang’s website, and/or make the time to see one of his exhibits.

Power is always dangerous. It attracts the worst. And corrupts the best. I never asked for power. Power is only given to those who are prepared to lower themselves to pick it up.

Fidel Castro, the controversial ruler who took power during the Cuban revolution in 1959 and led his country for nearly half a century, died in Havana, Cuba, at age 90.
The pendulum of democracy has swung, too far, I’m afraid.
