Art Not Financial Advise
And my most valuable physically artifacts to crush SAMO© by : ) ⚡️⚒️
It’s true, animals. I’m not a financial advisor — I’m an artist! I’m learning to embrace that more and more. It can be hard to do — artists don’t fit in to the typical molds available out there. And there is not exactly a tried and true mold yet for artists in the burgeoning blockchain-based digital art landscape! The transfer of ownership of assets on distributed-ledgers is a big change to take in for everybody. But the future of finance looks like it will be coming on very fast from here ⚡️. The fact that digital art can now be transacted and collected like digital currency is quite an intriguing phenomenon — not one I could let happen without me ; )
Today, I present to you the two most valuable physical artifacts I have created. If you’ve been following my work and my videos, you’ve seen them hanging behind me.
They will both be listed for auction on Dartroom — and I have just listed SAMO: Celebrating equality for auction with a reserve price of 7777 Algo (At time of this writing, Algo is trading at $0.91)
SAMO: Celebrating Equality
My Original SAMO: Celebrating Equality painting, initially born in 2011 from an intuitive impulse to paint some commentary on American media and politics in all red on a large, unstretched canvas. I sketched out the design in charcoal directly on the canvas, before brushing on globs of professional-grade Windsor and Newton acrylic red paint on the floor of my apartment studio room.
Back then, even as the artist, it was harder to articulate its meaning. A lot of people didn’t quite get it. There is a lot going on — A flying pig, cartoon elephant and donkey icons, a somewhat familiar eye in a triangle which appears to be a focal point emanating the rest of the image, a pyramid labeled ‘SAMO©’ (which many don’t know immediately how to pronounce), and of course, the message ‘Celebrating Equality’, sort of crookedly scratched on, almost as if a drunken pig had tried his hand at lettering 😆. (I had some of Orwell’s Animal Farm on the brain ; )
I knew even before I created it that I was about to create something significant.
It was a knowing that doesn’t always come with artistic intent. Having the piece live with me for the last 11 years has served as an ongoing call-to-action to continue the work of bringing SAMO© to the height of it’s potential as a meme, which I feel is nearly infinite.
My own custom-branded SAMO© is meant to be a bit of a mish-mashed reference to the artists Jean-Michael Basquiat and Andy Warhol. for me, it marked a passing of a baton — unfinished business I determined I was here to ‘finish’ the best I could. Basquiat would sign his name “SAMO©” in his graffiti tags in New York, and the signage is featured in many of his ultra-valuable and cherished works among art collectors.
Unfortunately, Basquiat died at the incredibly young age of 27 in 1988 of a heroin overdose. So we are left with a sense of Basquiat’s intent behind the use of the words through his art and graffiti poems, but it has always felt to me like the concept had so much further to go. I see it as a simple and effective way to provide a myriad of creative commentary on a corporate, consumerist culture that is driven by parasitic dominion and greed. Everything that flows out of it and perpetuates the cycle, I tend to refer to as SAMO.
You know when you ask someone how they’re doing, and they say, “oh, SAMO-SAMO”. That’s how it’s pronounced and typically what people mean when they say it, is that nothing has really changed for them.
It is my intent to use the SAMO meme as the foundational element of my own artistic ⚒️⚡️meta-hammer⚡️⚒️ to pound on the no-longer-veiled 3D Matrix illusion built up through millenniums of lies, deceit, programming, black magic, fake news, and synthetic DNA ‘therapy’ by the puppet masters that should-not be. The aim is cosmic change on a scale that is difficult to imagine, but something I personally must reach for.
I invite you along in the charge with me! ⚡️ I didn’t come here to accept the SAMO status quo of a satanic matrix where parasitic black-magic WOKISM seeks to infect everyone, and especially our children. It’s time to turn off the BS, and make REAL change happen now.
I’m just one guy. One artist who is unwilling to stay quiet and content in the war against good and evil. Satanic WOKEism is pure evil. If we all really knew how bad it was, we wouldn’t sleep at night. I’m asking for your help to SHIFT CULTURE with me. We can no longer accept the bought, paid-for, and blackmail-backed WOKE agenda emanating from the corporate black magicians pulling the puppet strings at Disney and everywhere else the SAMO Eye of Sourass (NFT here) has infested itself.
Supporting my work through the Animal Style and 11:11 For Change NFT collections is an opportunity to place your value-declining dollars into the new financial system on the blockchain — where your assets can be held in projects that align with your values.
What began with Jean-Michael Basquiat in the streets of New York in 1980 was continued on my apartment floor in 2011. And now it is evolving into an aspiring comic memeverse, born through NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens) and a cryptocurrency called ANML.
SAMO© has the capacity to be most important MEME ever created. Its the mother of all memes — and she wants to be known by all, and known well. It is incumbent upon us to tell the most important story ever told, so that we may NEVER repeat the mistake of falling complacent in a satanic matrix of slavery EVER again. And that’s what I’m working up to with the Anml Style memeverse, with the organic assistance of those contributing to this project. As we get better funded through NFT sales, we’ll be raising the bar more and more with media production.
We are the news now. We will make the entertainment. We will decide what is worthy for our children to watch. We will not allow gender confusion to be pushed on our kids. We are going to shift culture through art, memes, and righteous entertainment productions until satanic wokist trash idealogies are flushed from the planet.
Final note! I’m thinking the best way to get rid of parasitic woke demons is ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ POSITIVE CHARGE ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️
Okay… one more heads up for those who read this far down the page ; ) 🙏
I have minted another physically backed NFT, which I anticipate could add quite a bit of value to the Anml Style collection. It’s an authentic Robert Rauschenberg print that I painted a JFK portrait onto. Yeah, I’m pretty crazy like that. You may have seen it in my videos… you can get an early peak of physically-backed video NFT here : )
In March, I was the #12 highest selling artist on Dartroom. With your support, I’d like to make the #1 spot in April. Selling the SAMO: Celebrating Equality piece would likely do the trick : )
Cheers and thanks for tuning in! 🙏💫
