Court news

Ok, it isn’t done with ping pong balls (and probably isn’t art) but it looks like the sort of thing that will be eagerly taken up by elephants and chimps everywhere. As OTN is an information portal for animal art, let us tell you about the abstract paintings of tennis super star Martina Navratilova. Her idea? To hit paint-covered tennis balls onto canvas and create an exhibition called Art Grand Slam. The first venue was Perth earlier this year, and they loved it. There hasn’t been this much excitement on the burning rock since penis painter Tim Patch. Navratilova is currently showing in London and is set to tour GSA to other key cities. Why did New Zealand miss out on this subtle combination of sport and art? Balls-up.
