Tom Otterness, Things Look Like Trash

Why is he still getting our money?
I am going to an extreme here, and I apologize but I want to make sure people know- asking that people, who love dogs, if given the chance to express extreme disgust at an artist named
Tom Otterness
Search this:

Back during Katrina I was so moved by people giving up food water clothing, BASIC human needs to hold their dogs above their heads to save them from the flood. We did massive relief efforts- I begged for boats and help and people traveled from all over the USA losing their income to help rescue the pets people were forced to leave behind when their very homes were ruined by those waves and their pets were taken from them- and people helped. Planes were chartered for the sole purpose of flying pets out of there. This is how much the people and the thousands that helped loved their pets- that they would be evacuated then run to phones to beg for their animal's safety.

I have only one tattoo and it's of my dog Pippin's name, a dog I grew with in life she was with me for 17 years and she was a better soul than some people I have had the displeasure of running into. I posted a story of a surfer risking riptides to save a dog's (not even his own dog!) life- this is how loved dogs are.

This "artist"'s work is all over NYC, still breeding like roaches- MY CITY like a calling card like a representative, and this is the kind of person he is. NO, what kind of person in ANY stage of their life would make a choice LIKE THAT. No Decent person I know. I am sickened, this is a person who gets PUBLIC FUNDS. Was he attacked? Forced to do this to live? No he did it for what he called "art". How cute Tom. This is a character trait, a type of person- would YOU have ever done something like this? This person is trash and on my forever list of people that are SCUM and our money is being used to pay him.

I do not want a human like this still getting our tax money representing my city in the subways, in parks, over hotel entrances being called a beloved Public artist, there are some things I cannot forgive and he found it. No I will not "forgive" you. The only thing YOU are SORRY for is that anyone knows what you really are.

I have sent this on to many (ASPCA, PETA, Governor and a White House contact) will send to many more:

Dog killer artist gets paid our Tax money ?
Tom Otterness is a dog killer. Think of the hundreds of thousands of dollars he gets for each piece of his "art" and then I think of how shelters and services for animals have to beg for donations. He made an innocent dog think he was adopted and would have a safe home then he gets murdered for this guy's sick pleasure.

<<"Journalist Gary Indiana criticized Otterness for an independent work done while part of the East Village art scene in the mid-eighties called "Shot Dog Piece", in which Otterness "adopted a dog and then shot it to death for the fun of recording his infantile, sadistic depravity on film">>

His apology is only because he has been busted recently on blogs and rings hollow since he is probably afraid his free money will dry up. How is it he was never punished under law for this? Why is he continually being rewarded TAX DOLLARS from our hard work to support him? Does he give hundreds of thousands back to the shelters? Why is he still being paid our money and shelters struggle? He gets to kill on a whim and be rewarded? Why is he still here? I want the ANIMALS to get his ill gotten gains now, he is not who I pay taxes for!

I just thought you should know about this in case you didn't. Next time you need funds for something and can't get them just think of Tom Otterness getting handed six digit funds and then go to your govenerment rep and ask why are we being forced to pay for a dog killer. I want his money to go the the rescued pets and homeless animal services.

Tom darling can't be bothered? So this Brooklyn eyesore isn't even new? It's just a knock-off recycle of his Beverly Hills piece from 2005/06?

Wow he can't be bothered to use our Taxes to conjour something new! Seriously is this psycho just laughing at everyone as he counts his free money and fairytales and sculpts himself into his work? Who else are all those money bag creatures supposed to be?
