According to Paolo Proserpio “American Presidents have a beautiful haircut”, enough to win the main wall of the bastard bowl with the Wall Paint Contest 2015.
Starting May 7, a two months delirium made of acrylics, wood, cockroaches, pigeons, Big Babols, spray cans, nails and screws, reveals details and pieces of the pop culture. Jackie, the most stylish wife of all (John Fitzgerald Kennedy R.I.P. 1963) is effigy of the brand of the Presidents’ hair lacquer: Hair Cut.
A pattern on the label mix sacred and profane: Lee Harvey Oswald (killer of Kennedy) with Jack Ruby (killer of the killer of the 35th president), whose eponymous band is also the soundtrack of these two months of work.
The 60 Jaquelines Lee Bouvier watch with their third eye on the 5 presidents of the 5 American notes: 1, 5, 10, 20 and 100 sprouting from the bowl (such as the Rocky Mountains) in size 8.10 x 1.90 meters with an optical pattern.
Presidents’ Hair Cut was installed on July 4, 2015: Independence Day.

Today the jury made their final decision on WPC entries, and we have the winner…
Paolo Proserpio, with his work named Presidents’ Hair Cut Rocks that you see in the picture above. Paolo (Proserpio as we call him here) isn’t a new name for us, as he frequently collaborates with bastard on different levels and on different graphical projects. We always have a subject in common: the print. He also teaches Printing Techniques and Brand Identity at the IED school in Milano.
Proserpio will use collage, acrylics and even some spray paint (hair lacquer?!) for his work on the main wall, in the coming days. If you want to know more about this dude follow him on instagram @paoloproserpio Read the rest of this entry »
