Arty propaganda!

Jump to: navigation, search

Thought you might like these: this painter may have undeniable talent, but the paintings he makes are overdramatic, cornball propaganda at its finest.

Also, he's trying way to hard to layer on the symbolism. Isn't it enough to just have Jesus handing America the Constitution? Do you really need to label and explain all the background people, too?

Oh not this guy... it makes me cry each time I see it.

Awesome! I had seen the first one before, but not the Jesus one.

Oh yeah

Had to be done.

Also check the reworded one: "We couldn't have two black people next to each other, that would be a mob"

But seriously, this guy seems radically unhinged for someone who knows his way around a paintbrush.

the "forgotten man" is revisionist history at it's finest. all these corporate shills turning to "help" the guy, but "socialists" like Rossevelt turning away.

Actually I think you'll find Howard Zinn to be revisionist history at its finest. Shlaes is useless.

Statement to the effect that all artists are insane.

Тysic semper00:52, 24 February 2012

I'm sane. Although I don't "self-define" as an artist.

That's exactly why you will never understand art at its deepest level.

That sounds like every opera director I've ever worked with...

Scarlet A.pngpathetic01:30, 24 February 2012

You've... worked with a lot of opera directors?

2 in a professional context, 3-4 in a semi-pro context and I can't remember how many students off the top of my head. In fairness, one of them was more like "screw your 'deeper meaning' shit, I wanna do steampunk!"

You make being cultured sound very exasperating :-)

Star of David.png Radioactive Misanthrope09:24, 24 February 2012

It is. But you get to join a lot of committees that give you free cake.

A $4,000 update on the state of conservative propaganda art.
