Michael D'Antuono's Art And Response

Michael D’Antuono’s ‘Who The Hell Is Grover Norquist’ Painting May Haunt Your Dreams

Huffington Post: Michael D'Antuono's 'Who The Hell Is Grover Norquist' Painting May Haunt Your Dreams

We’ve seen Barack Obama riding a lion, Paul Ryan as a hot dog and Hilary Clinton as Marilyn Monroe. After all this, you’d think no political art could shock us any more. And then we saw this:

Who The Hell Is Grover Norquist

Political artist Michael D’Antuono‘s painting, entitled, “Who the Hell Is Grover Norquist?” gives a whole new look at the conservative lobbyist opposing congressional tax increases. The founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform looms Oz-like above well-dressed supplicants,  breathing smoke onto a backwards Republican logo.”He is the lobbyist whose Svengali-like control over the GOP has forbidden them to end the Bush tax cuts for the rich, creating unpresedented gridlock and putting them in a very ‘uncompromising position’ negotiating the fiscal cliff,” D’Antuono asserts on his website.

The only thing that could make this partisan painting better is a surprise appearance by Jon Keas’ Wicked Bachmann of the West.
