    [​IMG] Courtesy of the artist and The Hole NYC Graffiti artist KATSU has created a portrait of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, made with his own feces. The piece will be part of an exhibition at Manhattan's The Hole.
    This painting is really crappy.

    Brooklyn-based graffiti artist KATSU created a portrait of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg made with the artist's own feces.

    The work is part of the artist's "Remember the Future" exhibition at The Hole gallery in Manhattan, on view until Feb. 22.

    The Hole describes the Zuckerberg piece as "s--t paintings that are meticulous renderings of tech giants in control of more information than the government created from the compromising bio-matter of the artist."

    "Remember the Future," a show about technology in art, also includes 3D-printed hand guns, oil paintings of robots taking selfies and a screen showing KATSU playing "Grand Theft Auto" live from an undisclosed location.

    JIM WATSON/AFP/Getty Images Zuckerberg 'deserves to be ridiculed,' according to the artist, calling the Facebook CEO a 'mutation, this gross aspiration everyone idolizes.'
    The brown portrait is not the first time KATSU has taken on the 30-year-old entrepreneur.

    In 2013, the artist crafted posters showing Zuckerberg with a black eye and chipped tooth and hung them around New York. The posters were a protest against tech companies that exploit personal data and "those who plan on owning our lives" - like Facebook and Zuckerberg, he told Gizmodo at the time.

    "Mark is Mark. He's this mutation, this gross aspiration everyone idolizes," said KATSU. "His face has reach. He deserves to be ridiculed."

    He continued: "We're at the fork in the road with the web. It is being understood as a fundamental part of our evolution as a species. There are some that are fighting to protect privacy, anonymity and freedom and those who are trying to control, monitor and make profits. I want to let people know my beliefs."
