This deceptively lighthearted video shines a light on the corporate greed that has co-opted our democracy, monopolizing representation, wealth and opportunity. Dear Mr. 1% is an animated video from the perspective of an innocent child desperately trying to understand why some grown-ups don't play fair and share. The video contrasts the inherent morality of a child with and the insatiable greed and unscrupulous behavior of the corporate elite. Share it with as many people you know and let's fight corpocracy together. - Michael D'Antuono www.ArtandResponse.com
A departure from the the artist's sociopolitical oil paintings, this animated video reveals the more humorous side of the controversial political artist.
Though different in tone and medium, D'Antuono's concerns and subject matter remain consistent. His focus on sociopolitical issues such as racism, capitalism, corporatism, climate change, outsourcing, income inequality and other hot-button issues remain well in the artist's sights. Take one visit D'Antuono's website, www.ArtandResponse.com, and you will see how well this video fits in with the artist's other works, broadening his methods of communicating the need for a more populist approach to government.
