I’m a big fan of artist Michael D’Antuono and have featured his amazing paintings here at Eclectablog in the past. His latest piece, “The Elephant in the Room”, it outstanding.

#RESIST by supporting a political artist’s statement against the fascism & bigotry of the Bannon/Trump administration

Regular readers of Eclectablog know that I am a big fan of the political art of socio-political artist Michael D’Antuono.
