Nichola who?

This article (also the source of these pictures) says it all better than I could. But what a hilarious end result to come from this article.

Basically as it was, Nichola Romney from Nelson had her painting rejected from an art competition because it was just a bit too obscene. From what you can see in the tiny image accompanying this story, it doesn't look particularly graphic to me, but it still depicts ideas of rape and the oppression of women.

So yeah, now it's reported on Stuff that Nichola Romney is actually Nikki Huizinga, who is a far more well-known artist. As a commenter says on the latest article, it's all a bit fishy when it comes to the reporting; the two images to the left are very similar in lighting and background.

Regardless, I now think she's a bit of a douchebag, and by having a secret persona I think she's giving substance to the art competition's statement that they don't want the piece in their show because of it's content. She didn't want her name attached to it either, after her husband didn't like it. Whipped much? Now I see the source of her inspiration...
