Preview of newest piece

8 Jun

Preview Cat Lady

A preview of Lala Drona’s newest (and unfinished) addition to her series Sexe Sans Sex.  Being the second time Lala has included animals in her series, Drones are not exactly shocked.  What’s shocking is Lala’s plan to create a sexually stimulated animal.  “This cat will in fact have an erection,” the artist stated in a correspondence with Based on a Fact.  What’s more, the artist plans to add faux-fur to the cat’s arm, so that onlookers can interact with the piece by petting the cat.  Though some may think Lala is perhaps tip-toeing on the line of bestiality, she quotes that “it is all in good fun.”  The elderly woman in the piece was inspired by someone Lala saw at a cat show when visiting another small city in France.  Keep a lookout for more updates on Lala Drona, her adventures and of course, her art.

Lala steals the show, but Fred saves the day.

Not this time!Lala made a short and unwelcome appearance yesterday at the annual “Perve Grandma Convention” where she was accused of stealing an art piece by special guest,

Fred Le Chevalier. The “Perve Grandma Convention” takes place in Paris to celebrate not just female sexuality, but elderly female sexuality.  “Just because we’re older, doesn’t mean we’ve lost our desire,” says Adrienne Marceau one of the events core coordinators.

These senior citizens join together every year to share their patchwork and hand-knit sweaters in order to raise awareness about the oppression of senior women’s sexuality.

Many thought Lala arrived to support the movement, but quickly realized she was up to no good.  Many guests stated she was visiting artists’ booths asking for ideas or inspiration.  Witnesses later saw Lala approach Jeannette Durand, an elderly woman that had just bought her 12th Fred Le Chevalier piece.

Lala violently ripped the art piece from Jeannette Durand’s hands and made a run for the door.   She almost made an escape, but fortunately, Fred Le Chevalier came to the victim’s rescue by stopping Lala in her tracks.  He repossessed the art piece and returned it to its rightful owner.  “He’s my knight in shining armor,” Jeannette stated after the incident.

Many guests wanted to call the police and threatened to have Lala thrown in jail once and for all in order to stop her crimes against muses and fellow artists.  However, Fred and Jeanette have both decided not to press charges and Lala roams free, continuing to skulk dark alleyways and hidden galleries, looking for inspiration in all the wrong places.

Has Lala Gone Too Far?: comment on Lala’s tag over celebrity street artist

9 Dec

After seeing Lala’s tag over Stik’s piece, I was pissed.  I thought,  she approves this message?  Who is she to approve STIK’S message?  I was super raged, and then I remembered that I really didn’t know what Stik’s message was.

I think Lala is reminding people that we need to ask questions.  We cannot keep taking our surroundings for granted.  Because of her tag, which is still an eye sore (although, a necessary one), I was pushed to research the once homeless street artist and read up on his stick people (not stickmen according to an interview with the Sabotage Times).  Now I have a completely different view of these stick people, and another appreciation for street artists of all kinds.
