Survey Art: The ‘Most Wanted’ Paintings

After surveying thousands of people around the world and online, artists Komar and Melamid produced a series of paintings portraying the respondents’ results. The project was dubbed People’s Choice and consisted of the 30 most and least ‘wanted’ paintings for 14 countries and the web as a whole.

Interestingly, the Dutch (and the Italians, to some extent) were the only ones included in the survey that ‘produced’ a piece of abstract art as their favourite.

The artists also produced an even more tongue-in-cheek work: The People’s Choice Music, consisting of ‘The Most Wanted Song’ (a love song with low male and female vocals, of moderate duration, pitch, and tempo) and ‘The Most Unwanted Song’ (an operatic soprano rapping over cowboy music featuring bagpipes and tubas).
