Glenn Beck recently added a unique piece of art to the walls of his Dallas studios — Arianna Huffington, George Soros, and Bill Gates in garish French garb with the caption, “Don’t you hate income inequality, darling?”
Beck explained that after Ben McPherson created a modern-day interpretation of David and Goliath for one of the massive walls in his studios, he heard about Arianna Huffington and billionaire investor Nicolas Berggruen launching the World Post, described by the U.K. Guardian as a website for “the 1%.”
And Beck decided he wanted another piece of art right next to David and Goliath.
“I would like you to do Arianna … like a Marie Antoinette with the big hair,” Beck said with a laugh to Joel West, a graphic artist. “And Soros with like, the birthmark, and all these guys with just, ‘Don’t you hate income inequality darling? Something like that…”
And West went to work, rapidly developing the piece. TheBlaze TV cameras were able to watch the process from start to finish. You can check it out below:
Beck said his company is in the process of exploring new ways to advertise, and unconventional art is one of the mediums they’re considering.
Why restrict the art to the walls of their studios? He said there are likely listeners in high-traffic areas who would be willing to put up the art as well.
Beck showcased McPherson’s depiction of a modern-day David and Goliath on his radio program, saying if any businesses are interested in displaying it (or any other works of art), they can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“It is this unbelievable graffiti art that [McPherson] did of the New York Times trying to stamp out the little guy,” Beck described it. “And the little guy [has] the slingshot, and the head of TheBlaze.”
Beck said McPherson spent roughly $300 putting it up, and did it in a single night.
