Alex Schaefer is an artist from Los Angeles, California who just sold a painting of a burning Chase bank on eBay for $25,000.
Shaefer’s series of banks on fire has earned him two visits from the L.A. police, who asked if he was a terrorist who planned to follow through on his paintings, according to the LA Times. He told them he isn’t and that the painting are a metaphor for the damage caused to the economy by banks.
