Artist's Spider Man With Boner Sculpture Causes A Stir In South Korea

spider-man-sculpture-1.jpg

These are a bunch of shots of the Spider Man sculpture created by artist Eunsuk Yoo that was on display at the Lotte Shopping Center in South Korea. Spider Man has a big boner. Some people didn't like that, and, after a year on display, the sculpture has been removed. Per the tortured artist himself:

I am the artist who made this piece. My reason for it was that I wanted apply the natural physical phenomenon to a superhero depict whats's natural in the morning without lies and superficial-ness in a comical way.


Lotte Shopping Center has received many complaint calls this morning from a certain organization, and after their meeting, it was decided that I have to either modify or take the statue down. Instead of modifying my work, I've decided to take it down.

It was ok for about a year and now it has to be taken down due a sudden interest in the piece, which is sad. But I understand that a piece that could be potentially interpreted as lewd can be offensive at a place like shopping mall. It's disappointing, but I'll reach out to the public with a better work next time.

See, I like the artist's idea of showing a superhero's humanity. Like, sure, you can shoot webs, but you're still a human and humans get boners. At least humans under 70. They're perfectly natural, and nothing to be ashamed of. Unless you're talking to the girl you like at the pool, in which case you better cover that shit up with a kickboard because she and her friends will point and laugh. "BOI-YOI-YOING, here comes boner boy!" is all you'll hear at school next year.

Keep going for several more shots but WARNING: raging boner pics.

Thanks to Mark L., who wants to know what organization it was that complained so much. Because they're probably the real deviants here.

    so THAT'S how he fills those web cartridges.

    I've done that before, but I got arrested. Next time I visit the kids' play area in the mall I'll have to wear a Spider-man costume.
    ....just sayin

  • Dean Barbee

    His Spidey sense is tingling.

  • Superior_Joe

    He's just really, really excited about shopping.

  • asdfasdfasdf

    why does so much art involve drawing peens on things like a middleschool kid

  • zin

    "depict what's natural in the morning" so I'm guessing that's just spidey doing some stretches after waking up on the wall?

    What's your message? Why on Spiderman? Why at a mall of all places?

    How is it that there haven't been any extreme climbers going up the building to stroke his dazzling manhood for good luck & fertility?

  • AGirlNamedMichael

    Because he doesn't do anything of note, he wanted some attention, and now he's got it, because if following Geekologie proves anything, it's that if you take a pop culture character and add something pop-cultural or sexual to it(such as, Disney Princesses as {insert pop culture reference here}), you'll get your mediocre artwork plastered all over the internet.

    I picture a sweaty, gross man walking around kids with a raging hard-on in sweat pants, and then protesting when stopped by security because of the mall's artwork outside. Of course the artist has to pull the "art" card.

  • salbot

    Are we sure this isn't a foutain? Check out the second to last picture. Look at the angle of the statue's...erm...spider-manhood...and follow it down to the ground...and check out the splash pattern in the dirt.

  • Closet Nerd

    "Oh, uh, it's the pleats... the pleats in the pants. It's an optical
    illusion. I was just about to take them back... to the pants store. Oh
    this is embarrassing"

  • Andyman7714

    Is he fighting Viagra-man?

  • megaluis15

    he's fighting Viagra, man.

  • Salt

    I'm surprised it stayed up for a year (pun intended)

  • Closet Nerd

    You're supposed to call the doctor if the erection lasts longer than 4 hours.

  • I imagine as the shopping mall executives were considering the artist's proposal, they were wondering why he kept phrasing things like, "So after the erection of my statue..."

  • Guest

    my statue's erection
