Sorry to burst your bubble, but that IS food coloring in the jar. Beck's 'work of art,' was done to support charity through the Christmas season. ALL proceeds go to Mercury One Charity.
In 2009 Beck was named the 100th "Influential Artist" in the Art Review magazine. Which he joked about when discussing his project.
The reason for his newest creation was to bring attention to the freedoms of speech and expression. As much as he detested the artists paintings, he stated that the artist has every right to his work no matter how distasteful, demeaning and degrading it is.
