“Bad Apple” released 3 days before worldwide March Against Monsanto
Activist artist Michael D’Antuono, known for his often controversial paintings on hot button issues, is now aiming his critical brush at the mega agricultural biotechnology corporation, Monsanto.
The painting depicts an evil looking witch in a dark, barren, menacing orchard, offering a shining red apple with the Monsanto sticker on it. The painting’s title, “Bad Apple” is a double entendre, referring both to the dangers of modified agriculture and the corporation itself…
Part of the description for the painting reads:
I was thinking that if the witch had offered Snow White a genetically modified Monsanto apple, it might take more than a kiss from a prince to revive our heroine.
The timing is as ripe as Monsanto’s modified crops because it’s being released just three days before the May 25th worldwide March Against Monsanto.
People will be marching against Monsanto because the corporation has monopolized our food supply and persuaded our [government] to look the other way when it comes to the safety of their product.
At his website, you will find his press contacts, blog, and available prints.
