Many things come to mind when you think of Spongebob Squarepants: pineapples and perkiness, snails and squirrels...
...and complete and utter butt-bouncing, tear-drinking insanity.
1.What you don't think of are works of art, but the show happens to be full of them.
2.Kyle Clauss noticed these artful moments and decided to start a blog to chronicle them - Art by Spongebob.
4.He plans to feature every painted cutaway from the first three seasons of Spongebob Squarepants.
5."I was watching an episode the other day, and I suddenly became aware of just how many painted cutaways there are--often times, the punchline. Then I thought, 'there has to be somebody whose job it is to paint these,'" Kyle told BuzzFeed Life.
7.He created the blog to act as a sort of gallery for those images, "for each painting to be viewed out of context, on its own merit."
9."When placed out of context, they have a haunting, almost Swedish nihilistic quality."
