Sometimes, art is weird. We've seen a lot of interesting paintings made with body parts and bodily fluids (like the penis portrait of Kim Kardashian), but it's not often that we get to see the process. Last April, a video surfaced of a woman named Milo Moire "giving birth" to a painting during Art Cologne in Germany. In the clip above, 64-year-old Australian artist Pricasso the Penis Painter talks with Coconut TV while giving a demonstration of his talent.

In the interview, Pricasso says that the idea to paint with his member just popped into his head one day, so he "Googled it and there was no one else was doing it." He used normal paints in the beginning, but says that it was rough on his tool, so he came up with his own mixture. Thankfully the video is blurred so you never see Pricasso's brush, but you see him grab it, dip it in his paints and petroleum jelly, and rub it quite forcefully onto the canvas.

We cringe every time the artist talks about how hard something is, and his choice of outfits does very little to distract us from the fact that a naked old man is rubbing his genitals in paint, while standing next to a woman who is asking him about creative expression and weird commissions. Check out a few of Pricasso's finished portraits below, but please don't try this at home.
