If there ever was any doubt about the arrogance and sheer audacity of Israel, look no further than its repugnant and repulsive reaction to the UN recognition of Palestine as a non-member state.Instead of viewing the UN recognition as an opportunity to forge a new relationship with the people and the lands it has coerced and subverted for six decades, Israel greeted the result of the vote with an announcement that it would construct 3,000 more colonist homes in West Bank. Instead of seizing upon…See More
But why have I kept silent till now? Because I thought my own origins, Tarnished by a stain that can never be removed, meant I could not expect Israel, a land to which I am, and always will be, attached, to accept this open declaration of the truth. Why only now, grown old, and with what ink remains, do I say: Israel's atomic power endangers an already fragile world peace? Because what must be said may be too late tomorrow; and because – burdened enough as Germans – we may be providing material…See More

It was an illustration for the vida magazine. It is rare to find as most of his works are murals and the rest are in museums. I am looking for treasures made by him when he went to art school in Chicago in the late 20's early 1930's and from the time he lived at Taliesin with Frank Lloyd Wright. I have a Collection interested in his work.
How is The merchant mercado. Das Illuminati is a Lizard Conspiracy that YOU Perpetuate with Your PARANOIA, and since You Believe the Worst of Me, I will Help Substanciate Your greatest Fears. I AM "THE ILLUMINATED ONE!" I arrived on this Planet 60,000 years ago to complete The First Art Show Ever. The grunts and farts of the Neandrathal Audience led to a Group Orgy, that was impregnated with Artistic Genetic Modification, leading to The Birth of All Future Artists including You.
in all seriousness I will try not to lie ("try")...I don't want to post work that doesn't have a the right voice to post up here and I live in fear of posting things that might piss people off too much, no guts no glory-same old verbiage, but still I have clients that count on my civility and I sold my soul to making money with my art to sustain a living so for now I bite inches from my tongue and the lying becomes a game....I am assuming of course, you are calling me out on the fact that I promised two years ago that I would post artwork here and HAVEN'T yet....or are you not blind?
hey mercado, send some more of your crayon art on paper and i will wipe my ass with it, and then sell it, because my crap gives it value. I matted and framed a few images of yours, with reference to your unmitigated stance as a psychotic "Idiot Savant", with Homosexual tendencies, scribbling as fast as you can, Images of your HOMO-Land, and all of its many deranged personalities. I will send you another OIL-PAINTING, worth thousands of dollars so you can mutilate, and destroy as you did the other one.
