Wall Street Whipping Boys

Throughout the financial crisis, New York based artist Geoffrey Raymond has been hard at work creating portraits of controversial Wall Street figures.

When a painting is completed, Raymond exhibits them in front of Manhattan’s key financial venues, inviting people – with pen in hand - to write their thoughts directly onto the canvas. Over the past year, Raymond’s paintings have offered a venue for the public to vent their anger.

We asked Raymond for a selection of his paintings for which he has also provided his insight on the works themselves. Click ahead to see select portraits of Wall Street Whipping Boys!
