Maurizio Cattelan’s Art Basel Banana is Not a Work of Art

Trump/banana meme
Digital meme based on Jon McNaughton’s 2019 “The Masterpiece” combined with Maurizio Cattellan’s Banana

You likely already know the full story of the Art Basel banana by now. Kudos is sadly due to trickster Maurizio Cattelan for creating an attention getting Instagrammable metaphor/meme that raked in a nice pile of cash. Good job telling us that everything is a sham while still profiting from the rigged system Maurizio!
