Description A backdrop for TV shows, anti-war rallies, so far; 30 thousand posters and postcards have been made as a statement against war.Ancient Mesopotamia is invaded by monsters of modern 'culture' seeking world dominance of oil fields and a stargate in an ancient annunaki (reptillian) struggle. Only monsters kill (humans) PRAY FOR IRAQ is the ongoing denouncement of Bush/Obombamas preference of violence over diplomacy. The Arabic litereature has a verse from the Koran that says 'When People think that they are doing good but they are doing harm (evil)'.This poster was distributed across USA in 2009 and published as a back cover in the national FELLOWSHIP magazine, summer issue 2010. Basically, it is the Flag of Iraq (prior the invasion of 2003) that has 3 stars and Alla Akbar (God Is Great) on it. Only Monsters kill people, so, it depicts a reptillian (Annunaki) pulling a trigger and it seems that the area is an ancient stargate battle ground and the depleted uranium and radio active waste may be a prepatory phase for an alien invasion/occupation...Done over the course of a year (2007) as an ongoing prayer for Iraq, viewing this sad, shocking & awful imageis a North American answer to the countless prayers of the collective mass in Iraq who wonder why USA/UK are constantly bullying them with sanctions, bombs and bullits.On the soldiers smoke curls up a message in Arabic saying:'On the Threshold of The Koran' 'Magog' is H.W.Bush (Sr./41) nickname in the insiduos Skull & Bones club and the gaggle of perverse companies that are devoted to material wealth/profit versus community welfare and are impulsing a heartless war agenda....we've outgrown the Nevada deserts as a testing ground for the new fangled D.O.D. toys and so decimate the Land of Abraham.
FRANK CRAVEN, New York City Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement I was born in NYC but grew up in Hidden Hills California (with a horse and pony)
1968 MLK/RFK shot Vietnam etc. My folks took me and sis (Patricia) from the top of Ireland to the bottom of Portugal and settled in Barcelona Spain.
There I studied art with Kieth Patterson and worked alongside the Catalan
artists Carles Briega Bonbon and Salvador Dali to find my own paradigm and school of thought.
I have exhibited at The American Institute of Barcelona and various other galleries,
restaurants, discos and yoga centers...painting wall murals and cielings.
I re-live my italian renaissance lifetime as church muralist and take it to the next level as an ongoing intergalactic ambassador gridding the planet with light and introducing the new merkaba spin, healing mandala art work for hospitals and individuals. Ofcourse I have canvases and sketchpads full of fascinating stories that answer my query about life and the life in between our Earthwalks.
I do not do art, art does me...suddenly I am attacked and find myself in a zone that relinquishes common sense duties, so I don't worry about marketing or professional politics - I make money as an actor, writer, musician and sometimes as an artist but I can only paint when my muse(s) crank a swift kick in my butt. Art does me, I don't do art....
