The Art Of Carla Bruni

That's them all rightActress, singer, model, Queen of France. And now… artist. Is there anything Carla Bruni can't do? The work (see more here) reveals an obvious debt to the sketching of the young William Strang, but the playfulness of the lines conceals an almost foreboding intensity which puts one in mind of certain pieces by Egon Schiele. I can't wait for her Conceptualist phase!

His tie's not straight.

Oh, that is definitely deliberate.

Exquisite.

It's good enough to put up on the fridge. I guess.

What's with Michelle's button?

Those are Carla Bruni's initials. In French.

So Choire had a great piece published on the NYT Op-Ed page today.

Is The Awl gonna mention that here at all? Or are you guys just too modest?

And that's when I hit File > New Tab.

"non-hypoallergenic shackles"

I'm going to read right after this refreshing cup of Lipton Tea. Mmmmmmm, that's good tea!

HiredGoons (#603)

really? I prefer CELESTIAL SEASONINGS WHICH ALSO COMES IN A CONVENIENT AND EXCITING VARIETY PACK. MMMMMMMMM, etc.

I'm craving Haagen-Dasz myself now, for some strange reason…

Abe Sauer (#148)

Really brought a little much-needed funny to the NYT Opinion section, didn't it?

Making Michelle all gums is rather underminery.

josh_speed (#97)

She's really nailed the half prison-tattoo, half colouring book feel.

HiredGoons (#603)

methinks she spent a stint in juvie.

or at a Jehovah's Witness bible camp. Love those little booklets!

Who helped you with this?

I count 6 Ninas.

SemperBufo (#1,849)

Heeheehee. We are old.

This looks like a coloring book page which means IT'S A TRAP!

Matt (#26)

That's racist?

Depends on the name of the color you choose to color them in with, Sepia, Dirt or Fuzzy Wuzzy.

Muslin?

Things are going to get aaaawkward at the next G20 or G4 or G-wherever these people meet up and hang out.

tanene (#501)

not to take the fun out of this. but, doesn't the article you link to point out that bruni is not in fact the artist herself, but rather hired a collection of artists to create the drawings? (maybe i'm somehow misreading that?) regardless, the world is a better place when choire is on the op-ed page and we can believe bruni draws strange portraits.
