Shok 1 painting in China ‘censored’

Remember that Shok 1 painting in China that the authorities didn’t take to and were going to censor? Here’s the unfortunate result: instead of painting over it they’ve got someone to add kissing fish to it and turn the noose into hooks (!?)

I don’t get it, are they saying, “we love to catch fish”? Whatever the sentiment, the starkness of the original is immediately compromised by the new additions and the bastardisation of the original is a shame (also notice Shok’s tag painted out).

Shok says, “A friend sent me a photo of what the Chinese government actually did to my painting. They said they were going to paint it out. For me, this is far worse.”
