'Father of Digital Art' Objects to Bloomberg's Taxi Oneness; "This Is Going to Get Ugly"

Laurence Gartel, the Father of Digital Art, has responded to my post, NYC's Mayor Issues an Insane Taxi Decree, about NYC Mayor Bloomberg's plan to force taxi owners to buy only one style taxi for the streets of NYC, the Nissan NV200.

Gartel emails: of my collectors just sent me the [EPJ] article about Mayor Bloomberg and the idea of a one unit style taxi for 2013.

This just scared the life out of me. More than anything the Bush / Cheney and the Obama Administration has done,taking away freedom of expression, independence, and as you say competitiveness, the idea of ONENESS is absolutely frightening.

If the bad economy doesn't make people pick up their right of carrying firearms, this sort of government take over is too much to bare. We are about to celebrate the birthday of Paul Revere and I personally will do it driving a taxi, any taxi that is.

Here are a couple of pictures of the GARTEL / TESLA Art Roadster I was just commissioned to produce for the Tesla MotorCompany in California. Here's to personal freedom! - Mayor Bloomberg can take his ideology and shove it!!!!

Thank you for the alert. This is going to get ugly!

Gartel is considered the Father of Digital Art. The first Forbes digital cover was designed by Gartel. Gartel taught Andy Warhol how to use the Amiga Computer, when Warhol got the commission to do Debbie Harry's (Blondie) album cover. He was  just commissioned to produce for the Tesla Motor Company of California the GARTEL / TESLA Art Roadster.

ABSOLUT GARTEL is considered to be the first digital art ad ever. Gartel has created album covers for Sid Vicious (Sex Pistols), Stiv Bators (Dead Boys) Johnny Thunders (New York Dolls), Ace Frehley (Kiss) and Wendy O Williams (Plasmatics). He has also created artwork for such Pop Culture stars such as Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears.
