Commando Utopia - Sabotage art
When contemporary provocative artist couple Thomas Dellert –Dellacroix and Agnieszka Dellert-Dellfina attacks the world of art they do it under the ironic name of “COMMANDO UTOPIA” They are armed with weapons of Mass Construction and they embark on a anarchistic and pacifistic campaign of sabotage art, in a way that only intellectual terrorist can do. They do it with colors and music, poetry and ironic statements and always with a smile and a paint ball gun for fun in hand. They attack what they feel is boring, to one dimensional, to stagmatic, and much to pretentious. And at the same time they display themselves as targets for mass medial bullets. Their “ Artistic Manifesto “ is as much a matrix for their thoughts as well as for their actions. They see themselves as anti heroes , armed with a Bar of lethal Molotov cocktails made of equal doses, Fun, Fame and Fortune. They sharpen their pens, reload their arsenal of virtual missiles, and study carefully their invasion maps. Commando Utopia is a ART-Error organization with a contract to bring back the danger in art and to blow up the dictatorship of the art market. If you’re a gallerist out there, be prepared to be the next target.

Mixed media on canvas and limited series of prints on paper 2016 Cassius Clay was born in Louisville, Kentucky, and began training when he was 12 years old. At 22, he won the world heavyweight championship from Sonny Liston in an upset in 1964. Shortly after that, Clay converted to Islam, changed his "slave" name to Ali, and gave a message of racial pride for African Americans and resistance to white domination during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. In 1966, two years after winning the heavyweight title, Ali further antagonized the white establishment by refusing to be conscripted into the U.S. military, citing his religious beliefs and opposition to American involvement in the Vietnam War. He was eventually arrested, found guilty of draft evasion charges and stripped of his boxing titles. Ali remains the only three-time lineal world heavyweight champion; he won the title in 1964, 1974, and 1978. Between February 25, 1964, and September 19, 1964, Ali reigned as the heavyweight boxing champion. Nicknamed "The Greatest",

LAMBORGHINI ART In Motion
FINITO MUSSELINO FINITO Musse-lini is a new Anti Fascist Pop Art collection by Thomas Dellert 2016 Finito ( Finished or the End of ) is playing with his real name Benito. Musse-lino is also a play with words and spellings, and is based on the fact that Mickey Mouse ( Topolino in Italian ) is called MUSSE PIGG in Swedish funny enough , even though the Disney character is a mouse and certainly not a pig. But Benito Mussolini was. Benito Mussolini 29 July 1883 – 28 April 1945) was an Italian politician, journalist, and leader of the National Fascist Party, ruling the country as Prime Minister from 1922 until he was ousted in 1943. He ruled constitutionally until 1925, when he dropped all pretense of democracy and set up a legal dictatorship. Known as Il Duce ("the leader"), Mussolini was the founder of fascism. In 1912 Mussolini was the leading member of the National Directorate of the Italian Socialist Party (PSI). Prior to 1914 he was a keen supporter of the Socialist International, starting the series of meetings in Switzerland that organized the communist revolutions and insurrections that swept through Europe from 1917. Mussolini was expelled from the PSI due to his opposition to the party's stance on neutrality in World War I. Mussolini denounced the PSI, and later founded the fascist movement. Following the March on Rome in October 1922 he became the youngest Prime Minister in Italian history until the appointment of Matteo Renziin February 2014. After destroying all political opposition through his secret police and outlawing labor strikes, Mussolini and his fascist followers consolidated their power through a series of laws that transformed the nation into a one-party dictatorship. Within five years he had established dictatorial authority by both legal and extraordinary means, aspiring to create a totalitarian state. Mussolini remained in power until he was deposed by King Victor Emmanuel III in 1943. A few months later, he became the leader of the Italian Social Republic, a German client regime in northern Italy; he held this post until his death in 1945. On 24 July 1943, soon after the start of the Allied invasion of Italy, the Grand Council of Fascism voted against him, and the King had him arrested the following day. On 12 September 1943, Mussolini was rescued from prison in the Gran Sasso raid by German special forces. In late April 1945, with total defeat looming, Mussolini attempted to escape north only to be quickly captured and summarily executed near Lake Como by Italian Communists. His body was then taken to Milan where it was hung upside down at a service station for public viewing and to provide confirmation of his demise. FENITO Mussolini….
