    It makes more sense if you know these two paintings by Goya:

    and of course, what's going on in Gaza.

    i'm comparing what you do to the work of the faux revolutionary artist shepard fairey, and the difference is extreme. i will paraphrase erik satie: "the true artist is prepared to make great sacrifices and his energy is tremendous..." continue to be fearless.

    bold statement.. great job!

    thanks Javier. In lieu of the whole Fairy incident. I'm wondering If anyone knows who took the photo of the man carrying the child. I'd like to credit him/her. Not out of fear of a lawsuit, just out of respect.

    Maestro Poster Boy: you are a collage artist, and the source of your materials are as contemporary as the news cycle, and this month's madison avenue campaign. like kurt schwitters and his merz, you use found materials. therefore, i don't think that it is a moral imperative for you to attribute the authorship of everyone that contributed to the pieces of your mosaic; they have all been renumerated for their work in last months paycheck. the awful fairey has taken images from socially committed artists, and hijacked them for his own profit; he did that with an image that my friend rene mederos created for a cuban poster. i think that the a.p. is pissed at shepard, because his obama poster made it to the cover of time magazine, and the photographer of the image of obama was not credited. if i took that pic and it ended up on the cover of time, i would want people to know that shepard was jamming off of my riff. send me an e-mail at mbumba@aol.com; i don't know how to get in touch with you directly.
