Taiwanese Art Student Creates An Iron Man Portrait From Peeing

The graduate student is a fan of Marvel superhero and has a collection of Iron Man products. He said he tried to make his work realistic as possible, otherwise using urine would have been ridiculous. He took about two months to find a toilet bowl with a similar oblong shape to the outline of Iron Man’s face.

He arranged the colored urine to make it look like the character, and used his saliva to create foam for touching up. He needed to keep adding spit to his work while waiting for the judges to get to him during the contest. And of course, his artwork had produced a foul odor at the exhibition.

The creative artwork has defeated more then 600 competitors to win for the first prize. One of the judges has commented this is an emerging type of body art.
