Inspired by the Trayvon Martin tragedy, artist/activist Michael D'Antuono's latest painting, "A Tale Of Two Hoodies" calls into question racism’s effects on interpretation of policy. The provocative piece depicts a KKK hooded police officer drawing his weapon on a small black child in a hoodie who is merely offering the policeman some candy. This all takes place against the backdrop of a torn American flag revealing the confederate one behind it.
The artist is currently seeking an appropriate organization to help organize a public auction for the 30” x 40” oil painting with the proceeds going to benefit the Trayvon Martin Justice Fund. Interested parties can contact the artist at Info(at)ArtandResponse(dot)com
