The Dirty Show Obama Unicorn Porn Paintings

I've been invited by founder Jerry Vile to show a number of new Obama Unicorn Porn paintings at The Dirty Show 12 International Erotic Art Exhibition in Detroit, Michigan in February 2011. Depending upon how much time I can devote to the project I'll be displaying up to four larger paintings.  I'm planning on painting 9 by 12 inch SFW studies of all of the individual pieces and placing them up for auction as I complete them on Ebay.

You can follow the progress of the paintings on a new thread on the Faithmouse forum at Portal Of Evil (NSFW)

The Viral Video Paintings Are Google / YouTube Commissions

I've been keeping it confidential that the recent viral video meme subject paintings were actually Google commissions for their YouTube offices in the Roppongi Hills - Mori Tower complex in Tokyo, and waiting for photos of the paintings at their destination before revealing that online.  Unfortunately, the paintings were hung up in Japanese customs the week before last, and the delay means that I won't be able to post the pics until sometime in the middle of January. I'm starting two additional paintings for the office in Tokyo, and it's possible I may be starting another set for a different YouTube location afterwards.

Both of these newer studies are for the Tokyo YouTube offices.  The studies are 5 by 7 inches;  the finished paintings should be somewhere around 30 by 40 inches.

A new 'I Like Turtles' painting.  This is my fourth or fifth painting of zombie Jason-

Pork & Politics – Stuff It! Chicago Style

Here's a promotional piece from Endangered News regarding Ray Noland's Pork & Politics art show, which will be showing one of my paintings next week. This will be the third Chicago area show I've participated in, if you count the Run Blago Run show, which unfortunately misplaced and never displayed one of my Rod Blagojevich pancake paintings. I've decided to forgo my 'Obama Emanuel Sears Tower' painting which I had been developing and instead finish a single larger portrait of Emanuel, which I think will be effective.

Pork & Politics – Stuff It! Chicago Style is a group art show that brings to life the combinatrix of two of Chicago’s favorite institutions — Politics and the Hot Dog. Apparently, inspired by the quote, “Laws are like sausages. It’s better not to see them being made,” select artists envision politicians enjoying the widely consumed cylinder of random meat products, while incorporating Chicago’s rich vienna sausage history. The politicians include the full roster of upcoming Chicago Mayoral candidates: Emanuel, Chico, Meeks, Braun, Hendon and many more. Not to be forgotten are the Chi-town favorites: Blago, Barack Obama and Richard M. Daley.
Location: 23 E. Madison St.(between Wabash & State)
*Satellite Pop-up walk-by located at: 29 W. Randolph St.

Opening Reception: Friday, December 3rd, 2010, 5PM – 10PM
Show runs from December 3rd – 31st.

Guest Artists include:
Hebru Brantley, Peter Cuba, Dan Lacey, Don’t Fret, Julia Haw, SOLO, Lashun F. Tines, TNOP and Tom Torluemke
Artist Biography:
Ray Noland aka CRO is on the pulse of contemporary pop and political culture. Noland has produced some of the most exciting and innovative art exhibitions in Chicago’s recent history; from his Go Tell Mama! – Officially Unofficial exhibitions which were the first ever Obama art inspired exhibitions in the country, to his Run, Blago, Run campaign and exhibition which documented Rod Blagojevich from indictment to hung-jury to his most recent Sweet Tea & American Values exhibition which was the kick-off exhibition at Chicago Urban Art Society. Noland also independently published the now-defunct online magazine BLACKLIST®. He has a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has worked professionally as an art director and brand designer. His art & illustrations have been published throughout the US and Europe and are in the collections of the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian. Noland currently lives and works in Chicago.
