Description A disaster: as folks languish in jail of a disguised dictatorship, that has been unmasked...Herb rainbow of natures weed celebrates the gold light as Columbus discovers the new world, Maltese Cross Croix du St.Germain, Confederate flag cross with munitions and armament to indicate a racist genociding activity, the US Flag is backward for NEVER RETREAT a twisted display on the uniform of invading/occupying forces. The Spanish Flag of the conquering empire, Catalunya defeated (Sept 11,1714) Chile (Sept 11,1973) and USA Sept 11 2001 when Fascism took over democracy, also depicted are the flags of Vietnam and the revolutionary (red & black) flag with GM scandalous Deviltry to create cancer poisons as 'food' with fossil fuel pollutants 'legal' vs. ecofriendly energy alternatives. Banksters prefer the radio active wasteland versus a technological paradise. We have transcended scarcity but remain slaves to a ruthless greed machine of unchecked Capitalism; The American Dream (rags to riches) is actually based on a nightmare and wall street is a casino run buy mobsters in official uniform that touts torture and bombs vs. true security peace freedom & justice for all.
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....
