Albert and Victoria may be no Raphael, but their work is more tasteful by far than that of their celebrity-artist counterparts.
The artist at the center of the anti-Zimmerman painting controversy on eBay, Michael D’Auntuono, responded to Hyperallergic’s questions via email about the online auction site’s decision to remove his painting because it violated eBay’s Hateful or Discriminatory policy.
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?!
