Smarty

AK 47 Kalashnikov, multicolor original gun with applied Smarties by Kata Legrady from her Guns and Candies series.

Kata Legrady began a series of artworks in 2008 where she applied candies like Smarties to different weapons. She thought the candies evoked the Ben-Day technique used by Roy Lichtenstein in his comic book referencing art and by "covering" and in a sense hiding the firearm or other weapon, it loses its ferocity and power.
