July 24, 2007 · Print This Article


Rindy Sam a french artist has taken it upon herself to add to the Cy Twombly cannon by placing a deep red lipstick kiss on an unnamed 9’x6′ painting valued at more than $2m (£970,000). Ms Rindy has been charged with criminal damage after kissing it and told reporters afterwards while leaving the local police station.

“I left a kiss, A red stain remained on the canvas… This red stain is testimony to this moment, to the power of art.”

“Cy Twombly has left this white for me.”

She then went home and placed a check mark on her lists of lifetime accomplishments where it said abandon any real artistic contribution in life and get arrested & fined around $10,000 for kissing a $2m painting just so the name Rindy gets in the newspaper for a week.
