Komar + Melamid: The Most Wanted Paintings

Launch date: September 5, 1995, Artists' Web Projects


This project, created by the dissident Russian artists Vitaly Komar and Alex Melamid, attempts to discover what a true "people's" art would look like. Through a professional marketing firm, a survey was conducted to determine what Americans prefer in a painting; the results were used to create the painting America's Most Wanted.
