American gaffe-iti.

A South Korean couple mistakenly tarnished a half-million dollar American
artwork when they painted over it, as seen in a cringeworthy clip.

“They thought they were allowed to do that as participatory art and made a
mistake,” said Kang Wook, head of the exhibition at Seoul’s Lotte World
Mall, where the accidental vandalism took place, Reuters reported. The
damaged 95-by-275-inch untitled piece was painted by Paris-based artist
JonOne, a k a Harlem-born John Andrew Perello, before a live audience in
2016 — and is valued at a whopping $500,000.

Arranged in front of the abstract opus were the paint cans and brushes
used in its creation. They’re considered part of the piece, which may have
given the aforementioned pair the wrong impression.

Indeed, CCTV footage shows the impromptu impressionists picking up the
tools and adding their own dashes of paint to the work à la the Joker’s
museum makeover in 1989’s “Batman.” The clip concludes with a closeup of
the “reimagined” artwork, which now sports three ugly black splotches.

After reviewing the clip, authorities apprehended the Van-dal Goghs at the
mall. However, they subsequently turned them loose when the gallery
decided not to press charges, as the graffiti job appeared to be an
innocent mistake.

“We are currently in discussions with the artist about whether to restore
it,” said Kang of the damaged display.

The artist didn’t return a request for comment from The Post.

In the meantime, they’ve cordoned off the exhibit with wire fencing and
put up a “Do Not Touch” sign to deter others from adding their own “tag”-
lines.

On the bright side, the incident has reportedly prompted a surge in
inquiries about the display.

This isn’t the first time taggers have treated someone’s art like a
communal mural. In February 2020, vandals ruined a Valentine’s Day
painting by UK graffiti maven Banksy just 48 hours after its completion.

Nuthin' compared to the Republican attempt to destroy the National Endowment for

Why Are Trump and the G.O.P. So Determined to Kill PBS?

"It’s a less than wonderful kind of day for PBS, as President Trump has once
again embarked on a quest to gut public-media funding.

"First, a caveat: a budget proposal is more of a wish list than a solid
resolution. Last year, Trump famously proposed eliminating the National
Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities and privatizing
the Corporation for Public Broadcasting—which, in part, funds PBS. But those
ideas never actually materialized. In this year’s budget proposal, though, Trump
seems to be taking a second stab at killing Big Bird’s erstwhile home by once
more suggesting that the government yank funding for the N.E.A. and N.E.H., as
well as funding for PBS.

"This news is likely not a surprise to anyone at PBS itself, which has weathered
its share of fiscal attacks from the right recently—even though its programming
serves a nonpartisan function. PBS president and C.E.O. Paula Kerger issued a
statement Monday in response to the budget proposal, writing, “Public
broadcasting has earned bipartisan Congressional support over the years thanks
to the value we provide to taxpayers. PBS, our 350 member stations and our
legions of local supporters will continue to remind leaders in Washington of the
significant benefits the public receives in return for federal funding, a modest
investment of about $1.35 per citizen per year, which include school readiness
for kids 2-8, support for teachers and homeschoolers, public safety
communications and lifelong learning. PBS is focused on providing high-quality
content and universal public service to the American people, which is why we
enjoy strong support in every region of the country, in both rural and urban
areas, and across the political spectrum.”
