Artist makes statement with flash mob
Half in red and half in blue, representing red and blue politics, the troupe illustrated how corporate America -- shown creeping around and piling the excess clothing on his back -- is dividing the country.
Spray paint artist Chor Boogie (shown in photo 3) and his team coordinated the flash mob to promote the launch of "The Divided State of America" national art exhibition during the Democratic National Convention.
The six-painting series depicts "universal issues," such as "immigration, energy, the economy, class and religion," according to the artist's spokeswoman, Saskia Sidenfaden.
The exhibition opens Thursday, Sept. 6, at Gallery X in Charlotte.
