Getting your work shown in a museum is no easy feat. In an intensely competitive industry, you're often left to use your initiative if you really want to get ahead.

So while you might be looking at these pieces and commending the artist, Federico Mauro, on his persistence and ultimate success, he's actually having you all on.

The talented Italian designer skipped all of the tiresome formalities and decided to go straight for the end product. His exhibition of iconic movie monsters lives in the Worldwide Exhibition of Contemporary Art. Which he totally made up.

If you're asking us though, and we know you're probably not, we think there's not enough Freddy Krueger in actual brick and mortar galleries these days.
