The Truth about Goats

End of ‘Paint’ program signals death of Soviet Nonconformist Art

Anonymous graffiti and digital artist ‘Microsoft’ has said he no longer plans to work through the medium of satirical street art and Ctrl + V. Know for his subversive epigrams of post-Stalinist Russia, ‘Microsoft’ developed a distinct stencilling technique involving just four thicknesses of brush and a ‘truck-load of clip art’.

Unlike his contemporaries, ‘Microsoft’ refused to conform with pen and paper; instead just using a mouse: ‘…and not a fancy USB mouse, Comrades, a mechanical mouse – with a PS/2 port. That’s right, a 6-pin mini-DIN connector! Da, I said it.’

‘Microsoft’ is credited with bringing about the collapse of the Soviet Union by social commentary and using a rather naff looking lighting bolt. A versatile artist, Microsoft made use of a myriad of shapes from a four pointed star, to a five pointed star, to the even more exotic – six pointed star.

At times idiosyncratic, ‘Microsoft’ famously told Andy Warhol that to rotate any less than 90° was a bourgeois trap. Said one art critic: ‘Microsoft Paint was an original, he saw no boundaries – provided he selected ‘no outline’ first.’

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
