The Barrel-Monster, while awesome, results in criminal charges for its creator

June 14, 2009

JUNE 12–A North Carolina man is facing criminal charges for creating an amusing piece of public art from construction barrels. Joseph Carnevale, 21, was nabbed Wednesday after a Raleigh Police Department investigation determined that he was responsible for the work (seen below) constructed May 31 on a roadway adjacent to North Carolina State University. Carnevale, pictured in the mug shot at right, was charged with misdemeanor larceny for allegedly building his orange monster from materials pilfered from a construction site. According to an arrest warrant, Carnevale “destroyed three road blocking barrels by cutting and screwing them together to form a statue.” Police estimated that Carnevale’s artwork caused $360 in damages to Hamlett Associates, the North Carolina construction company that owned the barrels. Carnevale is scheduled for a July 21 court appearance in Wake County. (2 pages)

A fairly creepy Obama portrait.

November 19, 2008

I’m not sure what to make of this. Obama has the world in his forehead? This work seems to be serious in its adoration of Obama, unlike my favorite parody of him and his uber-supporters, All Hail Lord Obama the Messiah. This exceedingly creepy Obama picture done by an artist named Alex Grey. You can check out the full creative process at Grey’s official website.
