This painting is based on Ed Ruscha’s OOF (1963). Boof is a slang word that means to insert something in your rectum, usually in the context of hiding contraband from police or prison authorities. It has been used by rappers such as Juelz Santana and Action Bronson, and comedians Desus Nice and The Kid Mero.
