guess the celebrity spawn budding artist?
July 18, 2010 MICHAEL KNUDSEN


hey hey! a celebrity spawn has an art exhibition currently running here in los angeles … can you figure out who whipped up the sketch below (with the words treat me like your mother or i’ll eat the sun) find out who it belongs to … after the jump – GO!




the budding artist in question is frances bean cobain, daughter of courtney love and late rocker, nirvana frontman kurt cobain (she turns 18 next month), the sketch above is part of an exhibition being held at la luz de jesus gallery (i’ve been there – it’s way cool) called scumfuck and apparently was received positively, both critically and commercially (all pieces sold) the artwork was introduced under the pseudonym fiddle tim – probably because she didn’t want to be judged on the basis of her famous last name – i say more power to her – at least she’s not trying to be an actress (like rumer willis, ugh) or a singer – we certainly don’t need any more celeb spawns doing that! i hope courtney will eventually be able to patch things up with frances – the two have been estranged since last year when she went to live with kurt’s mom, wendy o’connor – i’m sure frances loves her mom but sometimes people do need a break from being surrounded by craziness! popbytes over & out – xoxo


PS you can see more ghoulish art by frances over on the gallery’s website, i’d love to own a piece!

Although Cobain showed her sold-out work under the pseudonym “Fiddle Tim,” Gleason has no doubt that it is her art. “What it tells me is that she didn’t want the attention, and that she wanted the work to stand on its own,” he says. “That shows integrity.”



The influences growing up in “a punk-rock household” are obvious, he says, adding, “She’s definitely keeping with the family tradition.” And – although they’ve been estranged since December 2009 after Cobain was placed in the care of her paternal grandmother and aunt – Mom couldn’t be more proud. “Did you ever look, into her dads art?” Love Tweeted to a fan who praised her daughter’s work. “I think its astonishing & considering her chemistry its a good thing. What if she had to keep all those demons bottled inside?”



“I adore my daughter,” her Tweets continued, “and miss her. But that scumf–k stuff is cool.” SOURCE
