Michael Jackson charity song What more can I give

This time we give on the Great Heart Auction - the Big altruistic Heart of Michael Jackson and commercial Great Kitsch Hanging Heart of Jeff Koons sold in 2007 for 23.6 million dollars . With this painting we open up officially era of kitsch-pop-art in Poland! This painting is accompanied with the picture of Mhaly Krasnal - a Cover version of original painting - which was ordered in 7 years old randomly selected child. This is symbolic for this auction for children, both paintings create the wholeness, specific painting installation. And we are wonder what price will reach both hearts together - Michael Jackson's and Jeff Koons's in the implementation of dwarves (The Krasnals), the more that the target is the charity auction in contrast to Sotheby's auction! Last year, at the Great Heart Auction our painting reached the highest price - 31,000 PLN (about 10,000 USD), this year we believe that we will achieve double amount. Buyer will recieve two in one - two images together, but the crucial thing is - that it's the great work, of the highest quality! The image belongs to our Charity Paintings series made specifically for the charity auctions.

With these paintings we want to pay homage to the king of pop, which is a symbol of great ideas, even naive faith in natural goodness and love inherent in the sources of human nature. Not without significance is the fact that Michael Jackson gave to charity more than 300 million dollars, and was engaged in promoting that idea among others. He dedicated to it also his famous songs as What more can I give, We Are the World, and numerous concerts.
During his life he supported the greatest number of charitable organizations, including Childrenhelp USA - the largest charitable organization against child abuse. During his concerts he expressed a message of love and concern for the youngest. Michael never wanted to grow up and longed for a real, wonderful childhood. He missed it and wanted to prevent other children from suffering at any cost. But not only that was the reason for his charitable work and mission directed to the youngest. That's what he says:
"All my inspiration and everything I have done in my life, comes from the children. Every song that I sang, each dance. Only they have that purity and innocence. In the faces of children I see God. "

The king of pop was also a great lover and a symbol of KITCH. Accompanied by luxury, intemperance in the salvation of the world desire and lack of distance to himself. He liked to shine, he had a weakness for crystal-lined jackets, gold suits, shiny shoes, shiny military and chivalry gadgets. In art, the most admired luxury, pathos, idolatry, and large formats. But in this kitsch area he could compete with the king of kitsch art - Jeff Koons. His great kitschy Hanging Heart except 23.6 million dollars is distinguished by other impressive data. His perfect shiny surface is covered with more than ten layers of paint, was executed with the highest quality stainless steel, weighs over 1600 kg, measured 2.7 meters, its creation took more than 6000 hours of human labor. Great Jaff Koons's Hanging Heart is an example of the highest quality professional kitsch, and this area is reserved only for outstanding professionals. So the regular artist with a master degree in Fine Arts could not be able even if he wanted to deal with this. And what in the last dozen years has dominated Art in Poland? Any fart in gray followed by a proper support of the corporated art lobby guaranteed fame. (Current Polish mega pseudo-surrealists and other realistic or abstract artists are artificially created products. They lack imagination, enthusiasm, luster, there is no life in them, that's a miracle actually they are able to breathe.)

We declare that with this painting "Great Heart of MICHAEL JACKSON and JEFF KOONS from The Krasnals for children" we open style of kitsch-pop-art in Poland, we will promote, represent and create this style in Poland, and become its kings. Our new signature is symbolic for our kitsch-pop-art paintings - our initials TK (The Krasnals) - here as The Kings with a crown - inspired by the signature of Michael Jackson.

We Declare that we are closing phase of Polish sentymental gray art (minimal art, polish art, polish shit art), finish our masochistic national tendency to sink in a depressing gray and open the era of color, joyful, kitsch-pop-art. Let us enjoy consumerism honestly, without stings of remorse , especially in a time of crisis, let the real perfect kitsch host in great hearts of our viewers!

The Dwarfs (The Krasnals) bring joy and always help children!
All the best!
The Krasnals


P.S. the text is an integral part of our installations, written in the scribbler style, very kitschy and pop-art, so is to remain in such form and accompany the pictures during the auction!

If possible, we wish that the pictures were brought with the light thrown from the reflector on the paintings, and accompanied by the Michael Jackson's song "What more can I give". We hope that this can be made, the effect will be divine!
Our project for this auction consists of three basic components:
- Two paintings
- Text
- light effects and song of Michael Jackson "What more can I give"

MTV The Krasnals - Mission Impossible


The Krasnals - The Kings – MTV Kitch-Pop Channel

This video clip officially opens our music channel, which will show hits - music videos in a unique edition of The Krasnals - The Kings. Here comes the long-awaited joyous era of kitsch-pop art, which will finally break hated by a large audience Polish sphere of gray, boring, over intellectual art, all of this great Polish Art Shit, which we The Krasnals definitely are opposed.

For the purposes of this era, we will use our new logo which is inspired by Michael Jackson - our guru of pop and kitsch.

It is no coincidence that we start our TV station at the beginning of the autumn-winter season, because our music videos are recommended during that period when the depression comes by autumn-winter. We hope to contribute to a reduction of suicide statistics at that time. And that is precisely the social aspect of art involved in our new project. Depression is one of the major problems of our nation and we want to address it.

The video contains dramatic scenes that are not recommended for people under 18 years of age. If you are under 18 years old, you must not come here because it could badly affect the meticulously created by the different education systems your system of values!

Side effects: - Possible inappropriate behavior with respect to the surrounding reality, intolerable environment, which may cause that you want to become an artist or think you're krasnale (schizophrenia)
