Iron Man sculpture made of bloody urine wins art prize. Your move, James Franco.

An art student in Taiwan recently won an art prize by creating an image of Iron Man using his own bloody urine.  The student said he was inspired to create the image when he saw blood in his urine one day creating the iconic Iron Man red and yellow. No word yet on why he was peeing blood, but my racism says martial arts. (Too many kidney shots during kung fu sparring).

He took about two months to find a toilet bowl with a similar oblong shape to the outline of Iron Man’s face. Then he was eating edible pigmentation and successfully produced red, black and green urine. He arranged the colored urine to make it look like the character, and used his saliva to create foam for touching up. He needed to keep adding spit to his work while waiting for the judges to get to him during the contest. And of course, his artwork had produced a foul odor at the exhibition.
The creative artwork has defeated more then 600 competitors to win for the first prize. The graduate student is a fan of Marvel superhero and has a collection of Iron Man products. He said he tried to make his work realistic as possible, otherwise using urine would have been ridiculous. [ChinaTimes via MicGadget]

His winning piece was called, aptly, “Blood Urine Man.” Reached for comment, James Franco just shook his head, saying “You’ve made yourself a powerful enemy today, Blood Urine Man,” as he strapped a dick to his face and rode off on a BMX with a gang of naked gangbangers holding boomboxes.
