The Romanian hacker known as Guccifer, most famous for releasing the George W. Bush paintings to the world, has been sentenced to 4 years in prison. The taxi driving hacker could spend up to 7 years in prison as he already had a 3 year suspended sentence to his name for hacking into the accounts of Romanian public figures. The 42 year old Marcel Lazar Lehel hacked into the accounts of notable people worldwide by guessing the password security questions of accounts using information easily accessible to the public.Continue Reading

George Bush Paintings

President George W. Bush was recently on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno to talk about the opening of the Bush library and to give the talkshow host a portrait painting. Apart from finding it funny that George W. Bush would open a library named after himself, I found him to be quite charming.. just as many mass killers are. Here’s some funny comments from the last Bush paintings post I made..Continue Reading

George W. Bush Paintings

After looking at the Paul Bremer paintings yesterday I thought I might have a look at the paintings of George W. Bush today. The Bush paintings were released to the public after a hacker called Guccifer hacked into the president’s email account and then posted the pictures online. The hacker has probably done Bush a favor as his paintings have generally been well received. They show a human side to a man that has killed so many innocent people.Continue Reading

Paul Bremer Art

I’m starting to think that the conscience of those who blew the shit out of the country of Iraq might be keeping them awake at night. George W Bush has taken to painting and so has the man dubbed the American dictator of Iraq, Paul Bremer. He was head of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq for about a year and was involved in a whole bunch of controversial decisions which can be found online if you’re into that sort of thing.

I don’t support ANY movement or organization anywhere, but I do love troublemakers that poke sticks at hornets’ nests. Abby Martin of RT (Breaking the Set) recently spoke with the Zeitgeist movement’s founder Peter Joseph about crazy artists and how we’re a danger to the system that relies on submissive robot people. They’re my words not his, but basically that’s what he says ;-) Continue Reading

Pricasso Paints Sarah Palin Naked

I know it looks politically biased and almost sexist to be posting two pictures of Sarah Palin nude, but nobody seems to have painted Joe Biden nude, so I haven’t posted his pictures.Continue Reading

Sarah Palin Nude

I know that many visitors to Art News Blog like nudes and politics, so here it is in one post: Sarah Palin nude!

Chicago painter Bruce Elliott has come up with a novel way to get customers into his Old Town Ale House bar in Chicago with his nude Sarah Palin picture. The American vice president hopeful for the republican party is shown in a full frontal nude pose, standing on a polar bear skin rug, clinging to an automatic weapon, with a lucky moose still alive outside the window. The moose looks like it’s in a river, but I guess it could also be a pool of oil, so perhaps the moose is stuck and about to die?Continue Reading

Politics and Art

An exhibition of contemporary art prints at the New York Public Library has created a mild stir. The NY Times has reported that a number of library patrons have protested because of a series of 8 digital prints in the “Multiple Interpretations” exhibition called “Line Up.”Continue Reading

Doodles of Presidents

The image below is a presidential doodle by Benjamin Harrison (1889-1893). If you see doodles as a peek into the mind of the doodler, surely President Harrison had some strange things going on inside his head.Continue Reading

Hillary Clinton for President?

No, artnewsblog hasn’t become a political news blog. Daniel Edwards has created a sculpture called “The Presidential Bust of Hillary Rodham Clinton: The First Woman President of the United States of America”.
It’s the same Daniel Edwards that recently caused a bit of a stir with the Nude Britney Spears sculpture. The Hillary bust will be on display at the Museum of Sex on August 9.Continue Reading
