In 2014 Charles Saatchi was pictured grabbing Nigella Lawson by the throat. Photos appeared across the press. I ‘reproduced’ the incident as

a small oil painting and uploaded it to my page on putting it up for sale at $30,000, Saatchi would scoop a 7% commission.

Within a month the press found out and splashed the story all over the Sundays. Saatchi was asked to comment which he did allowing the art to remain on his site but obviously not amused. Other versions of the incident were painted on chopping boards as Nigella is a cook.

I called it irony, the press named it Throttle Art.
