Michael Jordan loves poontang.  There’s no question about that.  What’s to question is the Western’s fixation of pop culture (Kim Kardashians ass included).  Contemporary artist, Erik Yahnker \ studied journalism at the University of Southern California before earning his BFA at the California Institute of the Arts in 2000. During his second year at CalArts he worked on the storyboard for South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, which might explain where his sense of humor stems from.  They’re aren’t many artists today that are more proficient at this kind of an exploration as Eric Yahnker, whose work, laughs at, jabs, doubts, and ridicules the USA aka Murica.  His art is quirky and clever and deserves your eyes!  Take a look for below and…Don’t ever let go Jack…
