"I Hope My Ex Isn't Here": Mike Monteiro's Paintings Make You Want to Cry (And Then Laugh, And Then Cry Again)

Mike Monteiro is a creative director in San Francisco. He makes paintings that say awful but truthful things in, I believe, Helvetica font. He sells them for $600 each. You're probably thinking, "Six hundred bucks? I could paint that." You probably could. But he thought of it first. Sometimes art just makes you want to cry.
