Gun Art

While I do NOT love the idea of keeping a gun in the house {which as far as my husband is concerned is a necessity} or pro-violence, or pro-gun in any way {although I have shot guns in a safe environment and must admit it was rather fun} I happen to love gun art. And here are a few of my faves.


Laurie Simmons “Walking Gun” 1999 Silver Print


Travis P “Peace 47″ {print} ~ here


Wexford Girl “Music Gun” {painting} ~ here


Wexfordgirl “El Diablo” {painting} ~ her blog


Steez “Love” {poster} ~ here


Roy Lichtenstein “Crak” 1964 {litho}


Letterpress Heart Revolver on Etsy ~ here


Dave White “Bang Bang!” 2008 ~ here …very Lichtenstein


Andy Warhol “Gun” 1981 ~ here

{and actually in love with this fake Warhol stretched canvas}


Philippe Starck “Gun Lamp” 2005 ~ hive here too


Christian Fossati “Girl With A Gun 1″ {photo} ~ here


Gun Hair Dryer here …but I would prefer this image as a large print.

    Gun is fancy when you look at it in these fun art forms — I don’t own one, though and never held it in my hands before….

    But cool post!

    I love the gun art.
    I see a lot of people in Brooklyn wearing gun necklaces. I hate guns so I don’t think I could ever wear one but I think as art pieces, it makes a statement.

    Oooh yes! I’m rather anti-gun (even though I live in Australia, so it’s not much of an issue here), but I must admit, they ARE aesthetically pleasing! Especially older style revolvers.
    I love that Letterpress Heart revolver best!
    I recently saw a pic of high heels with guns for heels, but for the life of me I can’t remember where!

    This is a great gathering of photos. Fascinating. Art and guns…how controversial is that? haha

    No – guns are wrong just like violence is wrong. I hope Obama bans your hand guns.

    American gun culture has crossed the Ontario border in the last 25 years. It’s wrecking our youth.

    Glamourizing guns or trivializing guns is a stupid idea.
