Within the last couple days:

• Robin Willians died

• an innocent black teenager was shot to death

• a police officer at west lake mall maced a black man that just happened to walk by, then arrested him and refused him water

• policemen have been using brute force against peaceful protesters

• Ebola has broken out

• 94 people were killed in 3 days in the Ukraine

1:23 AM: We literally laid in someone’s backyard for what seemed like an eternity while tanks rolled down the streets #Ferguson

1:26 AM: I’m live tweeting because there’s a media blackout. #Ferguson

1:33 AM: I’m so shaken. They’re literally just rolling around throwing tear gas into neighborhoods-not aggressive crowds. #Ferguson

1:34 AM: I was pouring milk over one guys eyes when they came back around and threw another at us. #Ferguson

1:51 AM: Let me repeat, THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS not crowds of protestors.There was only a few of us walking. there is no curfew, so why?]

Also, she was arrested earlier that day with Hedy Epstein

Robert E. Lee's Views on Slavery

historical-nonfiction:

"… There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil. It is idle to expatiate on its disadvantages. I think it is a greater evil to the white than to the colored race. While my feelings are strongly enlisted in…

nevver:

“…when you’re looking at live footage of a city in your country where people are being ASSAULTED by the police - side with the people.”

"A Tale of the Greats" is a continuation of my Hip Hop Royalty series. The idea was to create a body of work that portrays icons that have inspired me through my years of growing up and painting. I wanted to experiment with a concept that would see these people as if they were in 17th Century Dutch fashion and poses….. This is my interpretation of Modern Day Royalty.

All works are oil on canvas. I do not digitally render or work from sketches . I fully commit myself to these works and spend hours trying to put my take on The Great Masters Works. 

I am excited to be showing this collection and more at my solo show in San Francisco this August. I hope you enjoy the work as much as I have painting them.

This is the first full preview of the works. I’m putting them out to celebrate 4th July :D

For availability on any of these paintings please contact me on info@amarstewart.com

Thanks for all support everyone.

Ludo is a French artist known for pasting up black and white images with neon green accents on the streets on Paris and worldwide. His imagery often shows mutilated insects, animals, plants or different life forms with added mechanical parts. Strongly influenced by the skateboarding logos and punk imagery from the ’90s, his works comment on the way humans interact and interfere with nature. His limited color palette is a nod to DIY punk culture with its lo-fi, self-published zines and records, and certainly adds a feeling of rawness to his work. Read more on Hi-Fructose

It’s important that people see this

I dont even know who this is, but the media pulls shit like this often and it should be publicized.

mark duggan was the young man shot to death by the met police here in london, and whose murder, now ruled controversially as ‘legal’, sparked the summer riots a few years back.
