"I’m very annoyed with Slick Rick Snyder, but to be real about it, he’s just a festering symptom of the fucked up values of a power structure that allows bottled water companies to pay less for water than ordinary U.S. citizens in many of the poorest of our communities. What kind of country do we want to live in anyway?

This piece is a “perfect” addendum to a series I’ve been painting since the Presidential election, “The Cabinet of Horrors.” So far I’ve done Trump twice—no, three times!—Kelly Anne Conway, Rex Tillerson, Steve Bannon, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III and Betsy DeVos. Of course I have way more work ahead of me, as do we all…" - Robbie Conal


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Robbie Conal grew up on the upper west side of Manhattan (not Kansas)--his parents were both union organizers who considered the major art museums to be day care centers for him. He attended the Art Students League when he was 8 years old. Not by choice. Then, the High School of Music & Art in New York '61),was an O.H. (original hippie) in the Haight Ashbury by winter, '63, received a BFA from San Francisco State University (1969... more or less) and a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Stanford University (1978... for sure).

In 1984 he moved to Los Angeles and made nasty little black and white oil portraits of ugly old white men in suits and ties- politicians and bureaucrats who, by his absurdist standards, had abused their power in the name of representative democracy. In 1986 he began translating them into satirical street posters ("MEN WITH NO LIPS")

ABOUT Robbie Conal:
Robbie Conal grew up on the upper west side of Manhattan (not Kansas)--his parents were both union organizers who considered the major art museums to be day care centers for him. He attended the Art Students League when he was 8 years old. Not by choice. Then, the High School of Music & Art in New York '61),was an O.H. (original hippie) in the Haight Ashbury by winter, '63, received a BFA from San Francisco State University (1969... more or less) and a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Stanford University (1978... for sure).

He taught drawing at the University of Connecticut (Storrs) for two miserable years, '82-'83 (the years were miserable... he was, well, a miserablist).

In 1984 he moved to Los Angeles and made nasty little black and white oil portraits of ugly old white men in suits and ties- politicians and bureaucrats who, by his absurdist standards, had abused their power in the name of representative democracy. In 1986 he began translating them into satirical street posters ("MEN WITH NO LIPS")

He developed an irregular guerrilla army of volunteers, taking the posters on tour: putting them up in on the streets of major cities around the country. He has made more than 60 posters satirizing politicians and bureaucrats from both parties, televangelists and global capitalists. He also takes on censorship, the Supreme Court, and environmental issues.
