Using breasts for art's sake

While Picasso and Salvador Dali may attribute their success as world's most famous painters to 'painting-brushes', a woman is able to colour the canvass with her 'breasts'.

While Picasso and Salvador Dali may attribute their success as world's most famous painters to 'painting-brushes' held in their hands, a woman in Australia has become famous for her ability to colour the canvass with her 'breasts', and signing her creations with her 'nipple'.

Unlike other painters Di Peel from Tasmania, who sold her first canvas for 5 pounds, her second for 10 pounds and plans to sell the next 10 for 40 pounds each, works at the kitchen table rather than at an easel.

"I either apply the paint to my breasts and lean on to the canvas or apply the paint to the canvas and then lean into it to spread the paint," Fox News quoted the mother of two, as telling the Mercury newspaper.

"I sign every picture with my nipple," she added.

Commenting on her work, she said, "They are more like abstract flowers. But my latest piece, people say, looks like the Earth from space. My son named it Earthquake, because he thinks it looks like an earthquake."
