Art is what you can get away with

2008 watercolour and oil on linen 201 x 270 cm Archibald Prize 2008 'Art is what you can get away with' is a self-portrait by the artist Rodney Pople. The title is a quote from Andy Warhol, a truism that also reflects Pople’s attitude to making art. The quote adorns a t-shirt that Pople purchased from the Warhol exhibition in Brisbane, which he paints himself wearing here. The painting takes its inspiration from Goya’s 'The Shootings of May 3rd 1808'.
