Kim Jong Il - Portrait in Blood - Artist Phil Hansen

Phil Hansen stubbornly adheres to one artistic cliche. He's willing to suffer for his art. Take the giant portrait he made of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il as a protest against nuclear proliferation. He applied 6,000 adhesive bandages on a plywood backdrop. Then, using a quart-sized bag of his own blood, he painted Kim's face on the exposed gauze. His sister-in-law, a doctor, helped him draw the 500ml he needed.
