"Even though I consider myself a conceptual artist, I am a traditionalist when it comes to photography." — Andres Serrano
Controversial American artist Andres Serrano celebrates his 63rd Birthday today. Serrano is famed for his photographs which combine beauty and vulgarity. Using no digital manipulation, Serrano lets the subject matter of his photos speak—and shock—for itself.
Perhaps best known for his work Piss Christ, a photograph of a crucifix in what is purported to be the artist’s own urine, Serrano has drawn negative reactions from religious leaders, conservative activists, and—most famously—senators protesting his receipt of National Endowment of the Arts funding.
