The artist identified as Mr D’Antuono had his exhibition event cancelled in New York after a serious blasphemy accusation from the public.
The artist whose exhibition was cancelled 4 years ago is out with a new President Obama as Jesus painting but in this piece, the President is shown wearing a suit and red tie with his arms outstretched.But instead of actually being nailed to a cross like Jesus, Mr Obama’s arms are extended drawing back a blue curtain. He has a crown of thorns resting on his head.
‘I always regretted cancelling my exhibit in New York because I feel my First Amendment rights should override someone’s hurt feelings,’- Michael D’Antuono told Fox News
Artist Michael Dantuono was allowed to display his exhibit this year.
