"The Truth" by Painter Michael D'Antuono will be unveiled on President Obama's 100th Day in Office at NYC's Union Square.
And we love this mindfuck bullshit from the artist:
"Until now, Mr. D'Antuono has chosen to paint purely non-political subject matter, opting instead for iconic celebrity portraits and hard-luck romantic narratives. However, now the artist feels the need to make a statement."
Can anyone tell us what "statement" is being made if "this piece is a mirror; reflecting the personal opinions and emotions of the viewer"? [Underline ours.] Isn't this dim bulb actually avoiding making a statement? Or, by depicting Obama this way, trying to look brave without taking any heat? Trying to have his cake and eat it too?
Look, Artistic Pal O' Mine, here's what a statement looks like:
If you see Barack Obama as a mystical-powered anything you're a damn fool.
Now, Mr. D'Antuono, hang that up in Union Square and see what kind of reaction you get.
