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

By Rachel Oakley in New Art on Thursday 31 October 2013

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.

Ok, let it be said: each and everyone of these subways, as compiled by our friends at Web Urbanist, leave any subway on New York’s R line for dead. And we mean that literally. Much respect to the free-thinking architects behind these underground gems. [Hover mouse over each image to discover the city it’s in]
