Nina Park is an artist originally from Antwerp who was wandering around the world for eight years before she decided to settle in Argentina. She’s finally presenting her new collection of work, "Deep Throat Puking": art pieces made completely by using her own colored vomit. It looks sort of like that cute spin-art stuff, only completely fucking foul.
Vice: When did you realize brushes weren't for you?
Nina Park: I realized I wanted to paint with my vomit when, at age eight, I vomited on a sheet after eating my crayons: neon vomit.
What about those 32 people who puked while staring at your work?
Well, I get different kinds of reactions. Sometimes I hear comments of my work such as, “Oh shit. How the fuck does this girl get away with that?” Or “Bravo, Nina, this is the sickest thing I’ve seen since The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.”
What would you be doing if you weren't an artist?
I would be mopping the bathroom floor of a Belgium drinking hole.
What elements of your artwork have continued over the years?
Bright colors are still here.
What would you do to convince people to your see your work?
Seriously, who the fuck comes to this site hoping to see vomit?
What is your inspiration right now?
I’ve thinking a lot lately about Michael Jackson’s fortune. Tito, Jermaine, and Poppa Joe can't get it all!
What would you say to young artists?
Vivienne Westwood for president.
I’m thinking about launching a merchandise shop inspired in my work: tie-dyed shirts with vomit.
