Mandela Effect: Spelling Of Famous American Painter Last Name Could Be Example Of Mandela Effect


In recent days, the name of a famous American artist has become the subject of debate in social networks and other internet communities.

According to an article published by art critic Ben Davis on Artnet News, many people are wondering if the artist’s last name is “Georgia O’Keefe” or “Georgia O’Keeffe”, since some remember it with only one “F”, but others claim that it contains an extra “F”.

“For the record, the art-historically correct answer is the one with two ‘F’s. Nevertheless, some people still really, really believe that the famed American painter, pioneer of abstraction, and icon of the Southwest is ‘Georgia O’Keefe’”, Mr Davis asserts. “And not only that: they believe that the co-existence of the two names is evidence of parallel dimensions, or a sinister conspiracy of mass mind-control. Or something”, he adds.

The art critic then quotes several examples of people and places named after the painter that have only one “F” in it. “In the jargon, the evidence of alternate spellings is a ‘residual’ proof of an alternate reality that was not completely erased. In a video posted at the end of August, one YouTube commentator tracks down a host of residual ‘Georgia O’Keefes’ on the web to make the case”, he wrote. “Among the smoking gun pieces of evidence presented is the existence of a ‘Georgia O’Keefe Road’ in Los Cruces, New Mexico, and a ‘Georgia O’Keefe Way’ in Marlton, New Jersey”, he mentioned.

“I am delighted to find that there is a New Jersey neighborhood where all the streets are named after American painters, including ‘Andy Warhol Way’, ‘Norman Rockwell Way’, and ‘Thomas Eakins Way’”, Mr Davis, commented. “And in fact, the township’s ‘Georgia O’Keefe Way’ does seem to be spelled, embarrassingly, with just one ‘F’”, he expressed.
