The Dutch team of Internet pranksters “LifeHunters” put a painting from IKEA on display at the Museum Arnhem in the Netherlands and asked art aficionados for their opinion of the work by “Ike Andrews”—a surreal piece that shows a spider mounting a whale.
Visitors described the artist as a man who can “put all of his emotions” in a painting. Best reactions include:
- “It’s a depiction of the chaos in his mind”
- “You can clearly see that it concerns a form of symbolism”
- “It includes nostalgic attributes”
One even said he would pay 2.5 million euros (about $2.6 million)
