As I was perusing the rest of the work, I came upon some that I thought were worth sharing. So, here they are, plus a couple of other pieces I found on Etsy that I liked:
“When your gender harnesses you as THE COMMODITY of commodities…”
Whether or not I agree with the message of the painting, I really dig the imagery and ethereal feel of the artist’s technique.
This is an original painting by Pete Gorski.
Such a bold piece, and I love it! I think most people can agree that the main stream media is not to be trusted, and most of them just like to talk out of their butts.
An obvious anti-war piece; a U.S. dollar riddled with blood and an evil looking George Washington. If were allowed to interpret on my own, I would choose to enjoy the piece for its mockery of the U.S. dollar and the demonization of fiat money.
“Started as the recession hit and the jobs disappeared, and as the homeless and unemployed numbers grew and we were thrust into economic and political uncertainty. Throughout the devastation, there was hope. A light in the distance.”
Impressionist-style piece that evokes a lot of emotion about the recent financial crisis. I agree with the artist that it was a “rape” of America.
I love the representation here, the idea being transmitted. We must never allow the degradation of our freedom of speech.
“This piece features a Russian political prisoner with a sort of bdsm [?] feeling. I made this just before I left Russia to live in the United States for an exhibition of Mikhail Shemyakin entitled “Crying in Art”. This was one of 50 or so works in the exhibition which was held in St. Petersburg, Russia in 2010. Shemyakin is one of President Putin’s favorite artists, so it is an interesting trololo [?].”
I’m drawn by the color scheme- simple, yet powerful.
This is definitely one of my favorites. For one, I love skulls, and secondly, that mastodon is bad ass.
More art to come!
