The manager of an art show being held at Chelsea Market didn’t much appreciate Chris Savido’s portrait of George W. Bush. From afar, the image is a simple painting of the former President’s face. Close up, however, it is clear that the image is made from the negative of images of monkeys swimming in a swamp.

The painting was part of a show of artists whose work was to appear in the upcoming Animal Magazine. After the censorship, the entire show was relocated and demonstrations were held.
