No more sex between the buns.
Melbourne, a town that has, according to natives, a fascination with burgers, received a tasty tidbit of street art by Mike Makatron. As the name Kama Sutra Burger suggest, it is not your average cheeseburger, it comes with an extra portion of flesh between the sesame buns.
The mural, finished Tuesday night on the open art wall at Rathdowne Fabrics in the creative hub of Brunswick, seems to be a bit too spicy for some who complaint that the 6 metres high is crossing the line.
“Art is certainly in the eye of the beholder, but our arts and culture team does think there are a couple of parts of the image that might have crossed a few lines,” the mayor of Moreland, Meghan Hopper, said on Thursday.
For the time being, it will remain untouched on the wall but a discussion will take place early next week regarding how to proceed.
“It’s a mash up celebration of human diversity, body shapes, colours and tastes of all types of people.[I have] difficulty seeing the offense created by a funny piece of art depicting what all humans do, and not even all that graphically, it was already censored before I started.
Makatron, who created the work as a social commentary on how sex sells everything, is open to add strategically adding pixels or some lettuce, plans to print T-shirts featuring the original uncensored artwork.
So, if you like sex in a giant Big Mac, snuggle into the salad.
