How Can Anyone Call This ART??!!

I was on Facebook the other day and as usual received an invitation to join a group, I joined this petition because I felt moved by what it had wrote…. (see below) I have taken it upon myself to let everyone here read the plea of the group and make a decision for yourself to join if you are on Facebook also, even if you aren’t, I’m making you aware at what lengths some would go to in the name of ART.

#Here’s my comment:
I don’t understand how the mind of some people work, honestly to tie up a stray animal in the name of art, let them suffer until death, whilst all the while being on show like some performer for the sick & twisted onlookers who also consider this art is appalling! Not one person bothered to unchain the dog, not one bothered to even feed or provide water, they just looked on. The artist Guillermo Vargas Habacuc is not an artist but a sadist and anyone who follows and/or supports this behavior, needs their head read!

Apparently, the artist said that the dog would had died anyway being on the streets, so he considered it a opportunity in itself to turn a dogs demise into art.

I did a Google in pics on this persons name and found the images and the petition to be true

In 2007, the ‘artist’ Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, took a dog from the street, tied him to a rope in an art gallery, and starved him to death.

For at least 2 days, the ‘artist’ and the visitors of the exhibition watched emotionless the shameful ‘masterpiece’ based on the dog’s agony, until eventually he died.

This is the original petition which is in Spanish. If you’d like to read it in English, go to, copy/paste it click on translate “Spanish to English”. Remember it is translated by software.…


1. Inhumane acts cannot be equated with Art2. Animal cruelty cannot be overlooked if presented as Art3. Demonstrate intolerance for acts such as this, which only contribute to the moral degradation of society

I have also found another site based on this so called artist.
