Rob Scholte is being looked at as the enfent terrible in the Dutch art scene. Appropriation of a polka dot, a Monopoly game or a Philips logo it is all in the game of making the notion copyright into a dispute. Here with ‘Nu met gratis doek van Rob Scholte’/’Now with free canvas of Rob Scholte’ he alludes to giving away a canvas to the buyer of a commodity item.
Next to a yellow spray cap there is a blue spray cap version called Glassex Multi-Action and a re-fill flask, both including a cloth with signature in print.
