    Background: The art world produces its fair share of eccentrics. Some find their creative zenith by wrapping buildings in cellophane or inviting the public to smash their works. In Paris this week, a strong contender for an award for eccentricity, if such things exist, has been displaying his particular style.

    He is Erik Munster, a 45-year-old Dane. Brushes are out when it comes to making paintings, for Munster's masterpieces are brought into being with the assistance of a washing-machine drum. The drum is perforated, handles are added, paint smeared on the outside of the contraption and then it is rolled over a canvas. But Munster does not stop there -- he exhibits his work wearing a giant cardboard box, and a golden paper crown.

    He sells his own works because he has a strong dislike for art galleries. He feels they are parasites, living of the artists' talents.
