DEES: NUTS

Every once in awhile, an artist or political figure comes along who is so over-the-top, so mind-fuckingly absurd, that no matter one's affiliation or social beliefs, one must merely stand back in awe and confusion at their twisted vision. David Icke comes to mind, as do Charles Manson and Glenn Beck.
David Dees is just such an artist. Today's post is by no means an endorsement of Dees' political or social views (I couldn't disagree more with many of them), merely a quick exploration of the visual molestation-via-political cartoon he puts forth as his life's work. Who is David Dees? Good question.

His ENTIRE Wikipedia page reads thusly: "David Dees began his airbrush art career in the fast paced world of corporate advertising. Begging his way onto a staff position at an Atlanta sweatshop, GraphicsGroup studios, Dees was soon dealing with cutthroat art directors from New York to Chicago, creating the eye catching visuals that sold everything from cartoon package designs on kids cereal boxes, to billboards of dazzling electronics, to the newest soft drink ads.
In the eighties, setting up freelance shop in Los Angeles, Dees had success with the movie industry, painting hundreds of video covers, movie ad campaigns, and store displays for his clients Paramount, Hanna-Barbera, and Walt Disney Studios.
Then, an interest in childrens book illustrations led to a long standing association with Sesame Street, where his colourful and wacky illustrations of Cookie Monster, Big Bird, and the muppets were featured in Sesame Street Magazine nearly every month for the last 15 years, including seven covers, and recently, four Sesame Street children books for Random House and Readers Digest Publishing.
These days, long since replacing the liquid airbrushed acrylic paint with photoshop digital art, high technology has revitalized the look and feel of his artwork.
Then, in 2006, Dees came up with an original style of political art commentary inspired by the 9/11 truth movement and a passion to fight the New World Order agenda. David began creating and releasing an endless barrage of aggressive, and sometimes disturbing, photo-illustration images throughout the internet in an attempt to wake others up about the onslaught of the elite's power hungry world government plan of domination. Sarcastic to the extreme, funny in the approach, most times visually horrifying, this wild new style of illustration screams out our serious world crisis situation in a visual instant.
Patriot heroes like Hollywood film producer Aaron Russo who produced "America: Freedom to Fascism", radio talk show legend Jeff Rense, and the world renowned David Icke have all commented on this socially conscious illustration and were not shy in throwing around the term 'political art genius'.
What irony that all of David Dees' years of designing for big corporations trained an art monster who would now turn his creative power back against that very corrupt mainstream media."


What Wikipedia DOESN'T mention:

1) Dees is a Holocaust denier, "Birther", and anti-Semite.
2) Dees worships Ron Paul.
3) Dees is committed to revealing the truth behind the "Moon landing", mind control through water fluoridization, and the 9/11 conspiracy (Bush/Cheney did it, bin Laden was framed).

To me, Dees' art looks like some sort of Art Bell/No Limits Records mashup fueled by massive amounts of Tea Party crack (although a deep-seated mistrust of both Fox News and the Obama Administration are apparent in his work). Shit is pretty fucked up. Enjoy:

Some of his stuff reminds me of James Mason... but the "Universal Order" page that used to exist on Yahoo Cities is finally kaput. Definitely the "Anti-Winston Smith"! Well done, though.

I love the Art Bell/Prison Planet/Icke stuff. It's SUCH a trip.

Speaking of Icke. Didja know Fleetwood feckin' Mac had a song 'bout Lizard People? Wooo! You can hear it by DLing some various Bsides from FM singles etc. Definitely hilarious.

Charles Manson and Glenn Beck are apt comparisons - deeply evil to the core, but fascinating nonetheless.
