David Černý gives the Czech President the finger in 30-foot sculpture

What can only be described as “ballsy,” Czech artist David Černý has outdone himself again by erecting a giant purple ‘f**k you’ right in the middle of Prague’s Vltava River, across from the Prague Castle where Czech president Milos Zeman lives. The 45-year-old sculptor has made a name for himself throughout the globe for his politically motivated pieces (eg: vandalizing a tank statue at the Soviet war memorial by painting it pink!), and this time Černý’s point is just as clear.

He says the hand is purple because that color is ‘not used by any political party” and the piece is aptly titled “Fuck Off’. One can only imagine how President Zeman feels about this new addition to his city view!
