Who has done this yet? It's a terrific idea and I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun it was. The point is to combat the stupidity and banality of the visual junk on Facebook (ok...I admit, I can be a sucker for a good meme -- but most of them suck) by replacing it with art on your timeline. But the second part, is to give the name of an artist to the first person who likes your post to look up and repost on their timeline. This has the lovely effect of having lots of really interesting art suddenly pop up all over Facebook -- and to discover an artist you knew nothing about! So here are a few of the discoveries.

Ah...but I was supposed to find Takahashi Amano! So I went on a search as he was completely unfamiliar to me (which is of course the best part of this game). Takahashi Amano is an Aquaist -- someone who creates extraordinary works of living art through the creation of very large aquariums. Here are some of them:
Go ahead, play the game! Finding new art or discovering that someone else loves a favorite artist, or just to making Facebook more high functioning are all good reasons to play.
