Bankers Behind Bars!

originally published 9/22/12

I've made a few variations from the original "Bankers Behind Bars" stencil that are available for anyone to use! Make stencils, make posters and signs, make t-shirts, make stickers I only ask that you protest with them! They are both designed to fit on 8.5 by 11 paper, but someone with a little bit of photoshop skill could easily make it bigger. And if you have a plotter or can make screen prints, have at it!

Alex Schaefer chalks Wells Fargo

Originally published 9/7/12 

Alex Schaefer and Bankers Behind Bars Productions continue with their chalking protest series of civil disobedience: I hope you enjoy the Wells Fargo edition.

My friend Stephen who was a cameraman for the protest said he saw private security flag down an LAPD cruiser, but for some reason, we can only theorize, the LAPD refused to engage us.

Stay tuned for more! And share the link however you can!

MBS Fraud :
Bid Rigging :

here's a link to Max Keiser's post about the video. I like all the comments!

Fuck the 80's: Bummer Games

originally published 6/6/12

Seriously. Here's a painting from the series that was finished for the Charlie James show last month. This is a clothing ad from a 1984 Playboy magazine. What the hell were we thinking with those shorts? That's a lot of man-thigh. The three red white and blue medalists smacks of American Exceptionalism, an idea held by our political leaders that the USA is above the law; it's an attitude that over the years has done nothing but breed hatred for our arrogance. Here's a shot of the painting in progress and then the finished piece. As always, I try to continually work the entire canvas from the initial slap dash attack to the details. It makes it fun to do and look at! oil on canvas, 48 by 36
