Yes...Saturno Buttò is back...with more of his "cult paintings." When I first got wind of Buttò's work back in March 2011 (and not surprisingly making it to the EK TOP 100 of 2011), I nearly shit my pants...and then ate a handful of my own stool.

In many of Buttò's paintings, fetish objects and practices are often placed in a religious context that goes beyond just merely wanting to achieve a shock effect.
