On the same day that George Zimmerman’s painting raked in over $100,000 on eBay, artist Micheal D’Antuono was told by the same online auction company that his artistic interpretation of the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin confrontation violated eBay’s Hateful or Discriminatory policy and was removed from the website.
George Zimmerman is on a roll. First he gets acquitted of murder; then he gets away with domestic violence; then he gets his guns back (all five of them); and now bids for a painting he made are up to $99,966 on eBay. Is there anything this man can’t do?!
On eBay right now, you can buy a piece of tape used to mark the position of the visitors’ chair for Marina Abramović’s epic 2010 performance at the Museum of Modern Art. That might strike you as a fairly minute and extreme bit of fan ephemera, which it may very well be. But it’s also an artwork by Man Bartlett.
LOS ANGELES — Oh, eBay. The few times I’ve tried to sell something on eBay, I remember the emphasis they placed on selecting a good image (or series of images) to properly show what you’re trying to get rid of. It makes sense and I always noticed that the best eBay sellers tended to have the best photos. Sell it Yourself is a new tumblelog project by New York artist David Brandon Geeting.
