Oil America

Graffiti art, taken by "silverfuture" for the chicagoist.com Web site, July 2010
There's just not enough art as political statement going on. It's among the most powerful forms of communication we have. I wish more artists would use their talent to explicit call out the bullshit that's going on in the world. This piece of graffiti art is a great example of how to do it. America runs and goes to war and kills on oil. That fact is so obvious it's dismissed as simplistic. But it's a fact.
