“If you are after a truth from a portrait, you want it to do something a photo can’t. A painting has to have a sense of time passing in it. A photo captures a moment. A painting can’t compete with that.” Yeo’s scandalous portrait of former Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, is a continuation of the artist’s Porn Collage series, following from Yeo’s infamous Bush composition (2007). This print is titled after the catchphrase used by the press to describe Berlusconi’s sex parties in the early 2000s. It is also fittingly published in an edition of 69.
