    ANGELS EXIST IN A POLITICAL FLAW: A REVELATION IN ART

    My name is Robert Dan Gray Jr. (b.1961 Houma, Louisiana USA). I am a "Blob Induced Light Source Artist" from the root of war, which is legalized cockfighting, and I am a self appointed Presidential Medal of Freedom candidate with my Art as creativity of the medal. 

        I grew up on a legalized cockfighting farm in Schriever, Louisiana USA. I knew it was wrong. I was taught at Vandebilt Catholic high school that the root of war is where Humans mimic and think like animals. This happens on a legalized cockfighting farm. Legalized cockfighting is inhumane and uncivil. My human and civil rights were violated. The law here says a gamecock is not an animal but is a fowl. It was a sad and twisted childhood.  As a child I believed if I spoke about this political flaw it would cause a nuclear war.

    When I was 14 years of age my younger brother and I were racing on motorbikes. I saw him get hit by a car and he died instantly. Everything was in slow motion and there was no sound. I saw his body go up into the sky and a black shadow separated from his body. At that moment I felt myself split and a part of me lifted with my brother's shadow. While I was up there I saw a bunch of black blobs going fast in all directions. I then saw a light and my brother's shadow went into this light. Then I saw a transparent blob come out of the light and it "hit" me. I started to feel myself slowly sink back down into my body. After this happened I believed if I talked about it the world would end. It was the same end of the world fear I had with legalized cockfighting at home. Growing up I felt something pressing on me like a weight. I did not realize at the time that it was from this blob. I did not tell anyone.

    When I was in college I was studying Architecture. One night I was reading a passage in the Bible about fire from the sky. Instantly, I felt this weight or pressure rise from my feet, up my body and into a spot on my brain. It felt like steam hitting the inside of my skull. It felt good. It was a release of pressure. I thought to myself maybe this blob was trying to tell me something. It was. It was telling me to use this spot in my brain as a light source for my paintings and drawings. My paintings and drawings had no depth and were flat until I used this spot in my brain as a light source. They came alive instantly. It was a gift from GOD and had a message. This blob was an Angel. It's message to me is to make cockfighting illegal in the world for Humanity. PEACE.

APPROACH:

I always paint as if my brush is sculpting. I enjoy challenging myself. I can't imagine where I would be if I were not an Artist. My Art had saved my life and has taught me to never give up. My light source proves there is a God.
