LIES Street Gallery: Visual Report (#5)

Ok, ok. I said I was done, but I changed my mind.

Here’s more documentation of the devolution/evolution of the LIES street galleries. The final visual report of the destruction and regeneration and further destruction.

LIES Street Art Highlights (#3)

I was quite pleased with this one. The location was perfect. High visibility, high impact. Right where the Beltline crosses Wylie St. Unfortunately, it didn’t last. Greg Mike covered it up with some of his same old shit. Guess, he liked the location too. I might post about it later when I present some of my thoughts on the Atlanta street art culture.

Here are some pictures of the installation. Pasted up during daylight, for a change.

LIES Street Art Highlights (#2)

Logistically, I started focusing my street art displays on one location. An old favorite. The wall across the street from my house on Wylie Street. The place I used for three of my four large scale paste up pieces. I posted about them years ago. You can find pictures here, here, and here.

This wall is ridged, which made it too difficult for pasting up the large-scale prints. Too much surface area. However, this would not be a problem with these new smaller posters. Therefore, I went to work making a large scale display.

LIES Street Art Highlights (#1)

In 2020 and 2021, I took the LIES targeted poster series to the streets of Atlanta. This work meant nothing if it wasn’t seen by the public. This was conceptual art as a graphic brand. It was also political protest art intended to make a sharp and direct point.

At this time, I ventured to a few popular hotspots around town (including the famed OutKast mural in Little Five Points) and, along with the help of a few friends, pasted up dozens and dozens of posters. Here are some of the documentation highlights.

Deranged Delusional Dipshit

Who else? Georgia’s very own Marjorie Three Names.

Conservative Scumbag

Seriously, this guy. What a conservative scumbag. The poster outlines a few things. I believe all three of these are true. The first two are already facts. Entitled dickhead. Trump Fanboy. These are indisputable facts. The third is Future Prison Bitch. This comes after he’s prosecuted and convicted for sexual misconduct. Fingers crossed on that one.

Gym Jordan Wrestles Facts

Jim Jordan (AKA Gym Jordan) is the epitome of the guy that talks fast, talks loud, and talks often, but says nothing but a bunch of bullshit. He’s the guy who wears the yellow tie without a suit jacket. He does this to appear like a commoner. Ya know, a hard-working, no nonsense kind-of-guy. Total lie. This guy isn’t no nonsense, Gym Jordan is all nonsense. His simpleton moves can be seen a mile away. The photo I used below is his official congressional portrait. In other words, the best that it gets for this guy. It might be the only time he’s been seen in his suit jacket.

Gym Jordan is also a former wrestling coach at Ohio State University. He has been accused of participating in the cover-up of widespread sexual abuse in OSU’s wrestling program. One day this will eventually catch up to the caveman congressman. He’s not a smart as he looks, and he looks like an idiot.

False Profit

I’ve already told you how much I love double entendres. False Profit is double entendre perfection.

The Cult of Trump believe many incredible lies. One of these lies is that Donald Trump is a successful businessman, a genius of capitalism, and an expert dealmaker.

Trump is not even a good businessman. By all accounts, he’s actually a shitty one. Not only that, Clown Face also owes millions!

Useful Idiot

The term “useful idiot” was originally used in the Soviet Union during the Cold War to describe non-communists regarded as susceptible to communist propaganda and manipulation. Fast forward to today and it’s still aptly used in the same manner to describe the relationship between Trump and Putin’s Russian Federation.

Donny & the Stooges (Volume 2)

Donny has SO MANY STOOGES, I had to make a second volume! Volume Two features super stooges, Mike Pompeo, Tucker Carlson, and Mike Pence. Seriously though, Trump has a lot more stooges than these six guys. I could easily make a few more volumes. I might just do that too.

Donny & the Stooges (Volume 1)

Donny & the Stooges had to be included in this poster series. I’ve already made stickers and shirts of this design. Donny has so many stooges. This volume features super stooges, William Barr, Sean Hannity, and Lindsey Graham.

Trump For Jail

In 2019, I made this sticker “Shakin’ Things Up.” This design was inspired by that sticker. Consider this poster a New Old West update.

Writing Protest Songs

As the 2020 election approached, I decided I had to write some protest songs. However, I make visual art, so I made my version of the protest song, the LIES Brand targeted poster series. This poster series is yet other tentacle of the LIES Brand: my very extensive, multi-media conceptual artwork.

The overall concept is outlined here: https://brettcalleroartist.com/2020/07/15/the-loyalty-lies-project-and-the-lies-brand/

This video was taken on the day I began making the series.

LIES Brand Shirts

Look at me! I’m a model!

I only took 791 photos to get the three I used below. So exciting, but not as exciting as these t-shirts!

The Loyalty Lies Project and the LIES Brand

Last month I launched a new project. The Loyalty Lies Project and the LIES brand.

https://www.loyaltylies.com

One way or another, like it or not, LIES and the need to ignore or investigate them play an ever-increasing role in our lives.

The LIES brand is not a reaction. It’s a response. This is my universal response to contemporary culture. Supporting the LIES brand is an acknowledgment that truth is in question at every moment about every subject. Yes, some LIES can be harmless and benign. More often LIES create deception as a means of manipulation. Over time, LIES become the institution. LIES are the tradition.

LIES continuously surround us. There will always be LIES, especially when loyalty above all else is the demand. Loyalty leads to LIES. What LIES have you believed today? What LIES have you repeated today? What LIES have you unknowingly spread? What LIES will you loyally support or perpetrate? What LIES will you doubt? What LIES will you destroy?

The LIES brand is a direct statement about the political and consumer culture we inhabit today. In our political culture, facts are continuously manipulated beyond recognition. In our consumer culture, manipulated facts are widely accepted and commonplace. Brand loyalty is what matters most.

Loyalty above all else will result in LIES of one kind or another.

At the moment I have shirts (2 colors), stickers (2 variations), and posters (8 different versions) for sale. Get yours today and tell your friends. Spread LIES.

LIES: THE BRAND FOR NOW

More Loyalty Lies In Atlanta

A couple of weeks ago I added more of my Lies brand posters. Here are some images. I’ve already been painted over and torn down. When it comes to this kind of street art, it’s the nature of the beast. All posters are along the Beltline on Wylie Street in Reynoldstown, Atlanta. Just a couple of blocks east of the famed Krog Street tunnel.
