"Easter Jesus"
"Easter Jesus"
May 07, 2007

In the Spring of 2007 I created a photomontage of myself within an altarpiece painted in 1512 by Matthias Grünewald. I posted the image with subtexts like: "Happy Easter" & "Eats lots of Chocolate" on my friends myspace pages to celebrate the holiday.

This prompted unwanted attention for my "Thug JE$U$" Myspace page from a religious organization in Miami Florida, several strangers, who went as far as to have a professional psychologist "evaluate me by my myspace page."

Based on my artwork and content found online this psychologist in New Mexico was able to diagnose me with psychopathic tendencies and compared me to the shooter of Virginia Tech.

I was reported to the Miami-Dade County Police Department by this religious group as a danger to society and as a result was visited by an M-DP officer and questioned at my job on South Beach.
