DESCRIPTION

This month's chosen artist is from Albequerque New Mexico; he is known for his controversial murals and paintings depicting the relevance of corporate greed in our generation.  Targeting faceless corporations such as McDonald's and KFC, he satirically gives life to the emptiness of their promises society. He also uses the faces of normal citizens to emphasize the effects of these empty gestures are having on "normal people".
