The artist is 46 year old Norwegian Bjarne Melgaard. He is a popular and well renowned artist, who is famous for making mischievous antics, so it’s safe to say he has a reputation. However, he is said not to believe in racism and hasn’t apologised for the seat that caused trouble.
In a recent interview, Chelsea’s boss girlfriend 32 year old Dasha has apologised saying:
“This photograph, which has been published completely out of context, is of an artwork intended specifically as a commentary on gender and racial politics. I utterly abhor racism and would like to apologise to anyone who has been offended by this image.”
