“America’s Most Unwanted (An Homage)” 2014, By Danny Tisdale

americas most unwanted2

This homage to martyrs from the hoods across the United States is a new version of a ‘Most Wanted’ piece by Andy Warhol from the 1960’s and an update of a work I created a few years back titled ‘America’s Most Wanted.’

I wanted to respond in someone way to what has happened recently with Mike Brown in St. Louis, Garner in NYC, Rodney King, Sean Grant, Trayvon Martin, Sean Bell, etc.,. in a situation that police violence to men of color happens too often and it most certainly could happen to me or you (depending on who you are).
