So I was wondering along the city when I stumbled upon this amazing work of art which appears to be Frank Zappa? Though, I could be wrong. I have had a lot of people telling me that it's not Zappa because apparently there are no similar pictures of him like this painting unless its fan art but c'mon, the moustache and everything, It just looks like him! If anyone knows and could help it would be much appreciated! photo below

It's pretty obvious it's a portrait of Frank Zappa.

Notwithstanding the dreadlocks, the zombie eyes and the foreshortened honker, it's in the ballpark... :P

i don't know what you guys are seeing...
that thing is clearly not what you think it is.
in fact, we should have a "name this piece" contest.

i'll start: morphine drip/monsoon of phantom pain tchotchke

As a geneticist I can say it is a cross between Frank and the woman crawling out from Zappa's swimming pool, in the cover of HR (Ms Frka?)

i am no geneticist,
but i can say it is a cross between a burning windmill made of ecto skeletons
and a cascading gas spill stemming from a teetering gasoline truck accident...


just sayin'.
