Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu Addictees!

It’s that time again. We at Addicted Art Gallery are excited to reflect on our fantastic year and share it with you, our wonderful followers (is it just us or does the word followers make you think of a cult?). It’s been a wild ride, full of new art, sprinkled with community guideline-breaking nipples and butts (thanks for the thrills, Formentos!).

Here are the highlights with a dash of some bizarre pop culture moments…

JANUARY

We started the year with a new series of limited edition prints by the soulful Billy Ma ( Booda Brand). The dynamic Cinefyl series celebrated movies from a time when nobody puts baby in a corner, and everyone wants to be a steel town girl on a Saturday night…

Oh, and KFC ran out of chicken. What the actual cluck?

FEBRUARY

A bored Russian museum guard damaged a prized avant-garde painting by doodling cartoon eyes onto two faceless figures. Clearly, he wanted to give them the gift of sight. Not going to lie; we snarfed (snort-laughed) a bit.

MARCH

Will Smith clocked Chris Rock. Neighbours was cancelled. We reminisced about Scott and Charlene and remembered their wedding like the VHS tape we recorded it on in 1987…

APRIL

This month, we had an in-depth chat with Formento & Formento — they are also why we now have precision smiley-face nipple-covering skills for our social media posts.

And in case you were wondering, we’ve decided the award for best April Fools’ joke goes to… the 1957 Spaghetti Harvest in Ticino. We want a spaghetti tree!
