The Secret Meaning Of Underwear In My Obama Art

obama words of hopeI want to discuss the "underwear" component of "Obama Taco Underwear." Though it is a subject so deep and saturated with meaning as to be impossible to cover in this short writing, I hope to at least add a little bit of clarity. In the most superficial sense, underwear in my art represents the "white people" portion of the trinity of the groups of Americans inherent in the name "Obama Taco Underwear." "Obama Taco Underwear," in name alone, represents the three major groups of American people. "Obama," obviously represents the blacks. "Taco" represents the Latinos and "Underwear" represents the whites because in the majority of the art and photos featured on this site I portray and like to wear "tightie whities." My predisposition toward white cotton underwear has nothing to do with a radial prejudice whatsoever but rather stems back to my childhood and what my mother had me wear; as well as my love of Herman Melville's great American novel, Moby Dick, where in Chapter 42 he explains the significance of the "The Whiteness of the Whale" and what the color meant to the obsessed, vengeance-seeking Captain Ahab.

Magic Obama Moments During An Unforgettable Time

obama words of hopeI remember when Barack Obama held a rally in my hometown and how excited I was to see him. I felt compelled to attend the rally, I simply had to, like I was drawn to it in order to be a part of history. What I learned and observed that night was something I never want to forget and that is why the next day after the rally I began to work on my "Obama Taco Underwear" painting series. I wanted to play a role; I wanted to take part in the movement and possibly even add to it.. . . .. . . click here to read more

Using Mexican Food As A Symbol For Positive Change In America

It's a "Change that can make you HOWL"!! And what does one do when they have awoken the hairy, hopeful beast inside of them? They crave food! There is a hunger inside of me to make progress, to make art and to accomplish things within our nation's new movement of hope and I have chosen to symbolize this , the object of my craving with MEXICAN FOOD, mainly tacos. . . . .. . . click here to read more

Obama As A Mirror And Motivational Leader For Werewolves

obama words of hopeI created this website and began my "Obama Taco Underwear" painting series because I wanted to understand the phenomena of Obamamania and understand what it was within myself that drew me to Obama. It was in January 2008 that I first found myself being extremely moved by Obama's speeches. I felt a certain magic and a sense of community with my fellow Americans that I had never felt before. In the faces of the people in the crowds I saw a certain optimism and a gleam of hope that often drew me to tears. Honestly, back in January I still felt that Obama had very little chance to beat Hillary Clinton in the primaries. What Obama did for me back then, though, was awaken all the hope and idealism I had long buried inside of me, those dreams I had long left for dead. Obama made me want to believe in America again. He made me want to love my country again and become a part of this communal effort of unity to CHANGE things, and I realized that first I had to change MYSELF. . . . .. . . click here to read more

Obama Christmas Painting

obama christmas paintingThe Fat Cats on Wall Street aren't so fat anymore! All the head executives of major U.S. banks are now starving and skinny as a candy cane as they meow for help from the government to bail them out. While these greedy corporate creeps wait around to receive their funds from the Troubled Asset Relief program (TARP), President-Elect Obama has taken pity on them. While most Americans are fine with letting them jump off a cliff, Obama was charitable enough to let them jump off a cliff and into a pit of GREEN GUACAMOLE! Then after letting them feast on nothing but crushed avocadoes for awhile, on Christmas Day he and a few of his helpers volunteer to give these guys a few tacos to eat for the holidays. . . . . .. . . .. . . click here to read more

Obama Turns Into Werewolf During Bulls Basketball Game

obama turns into werewolfHoly hope and howls at the moon! There's a werewolf in Washington! An amazing thing happened the other night when President-Elect Barack Obama was attending a Chicago Bulls game. Obama was so happy that his team was leading at half-time that he got up from his seat and shouted out to the whole crowd, "Meet me at center court as I turn into a werewolf!" Many in the crowd were confused and some were even scared. Were the rumors that Obama had a "hidden agenda" true, that as soon as we elected him he would reveal his true inner nature? Was this the night that all of America would realize they had made a mistake?. . . . .. . . .. . . click here to read more

Sailor Obama Meets The Girl With The Golden Skull

obama sailor girl with golden skullIs Barack Obama an alien? This painting explores the possibility as, just like in that Styx song, "Come Sail Away," I conflate the notion of sailors on the sea with extra-terrestrial lifeforms who "sail" across the endless dark matter of our Universe. There are many interesting things about Obama, that's for sure, and he has become a focal point for all kinds of conspiracy theories. One story most have heard that pertains to all newly-elected Presidents of the United States is that before they take office they have to attend these secret occult rituals where they do dances around pagan statues in their underwear and have meetings with the "Babylonian Brotherhood," the "Illuminati," or whatever word you want to call the "secret invisible government" that is the boogeyman of much conspiracy lore. In this painting I've made up my own little requirement for our newly-elected President which says that before he takes office he must have a secret meeting with the "GIRL WITH GOLDEN SKULL"!!!. . . . .. . . .. . . click here to read more
