This photo of Manchester on New Year’s Eve has gone viral. It appeared in the Manchester Evening News, abbreviated M.E.N. Who could have seen that one coming?
It seems Jimbo himself has become something of an art connoisseur. The BBC reports “And the requests to buy Joel’s prints continue – the latest from Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia.”
Amateur art critics have gone to town on this, with one even attempting to prove the image is based on a “golden ratio” theory.
But I say no. All the best art these days is based on triangles. Here is the proof.
The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci? Triangles.
Picasso’s Guernica? One huge triangle.
The Manchester photo itself is nothing but a series of strategically placed triangles.
I rest my case.
And the guy with the beer? The guy is okay, the beer is okay. And by now you should be able to spot the obvious triangles.
