No reason not to assume he's a pedo.

It could be also the tasteless tragedy of following shitty artists that try too hard to be rebellious. Blank people are desperate to be edgy.

Real art has too much depth and is too complicated for trend followers.

True. This stuff does give off a creepy vibe, but it could mean he's just a creepy lib. https://sobadsogood.com/2015/10/05/the-unreal-office-of-nike-ceo-mark-parker/

Putting pictures up on the wall that denotes abuse to children or animals, well I find that totally offensive. I did not say sexual abuse, but abuse. There are those that have said that hurting or abusing an animal is the precursor to abusing children. Hanging this on your wall is really to me, showing you are honoring the artist and the works. I don't know if he is a pedophile, but his taste for this stuff is sickening. He should be watched. Has he made any off the mark statements about children?

I wasn't able to find any statements, but I'm sure he has people to make sure his digital image is squeaky clean. I did find this about his art collection:

He is an avid arts supporter with an extensive ongoing collection of modern, low brow and underground contemporary art, along with many other one-of-a-kind collectibles. In June 7, 2012 pop culture website So Bad So Good showcased 'The Unreal Artwork Inside The Office Of NIKE CEO Mark Parker'. Notable artists from Parker's collection include Andy Warhol, Adonna Khare, Mark Ryden, Kris Kuksi, Todd Schorr, Tim Biskup, Eric White, Sas Christian, Sebastian Kruger, Charles Krafft, Scott Musgrove, Michael Leavitt, Lipson Robotics and Randy Regier. Other notable items include rare movie ephemera such as original props and models from "Mars Attacks!" (1996), "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (1951), "Back to the Future" (1989) and "Batman" (1989). -- https://www.marketscreener.com/business-leaders/Mark-G-Parker-3990/biography/

Yeah, especially this. https://www.marketscreener.com/business-leaders/Andrew-Campion-0FC0ZY-E/biography/ This guy that he connects with at Disney seems to connect with Warren Buffet.

How did you find out this is his favorite artist?

[–] Dfens [S] 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

I saw the meme first and then investigated and found out that it was consistent with the kind of art Parker likes.

And then you hosted the image on reddit? Perfect!

Can someone tell me what the bunny stuff means? It seems to pop up repeatedly.

I think him being on Disney's board of directors is more damning than this art. His collection reminds me of those gay guys with all the cool, atomic age toys. Sure, that guy lives with his mother and probably has some disturbing playtime, but overall harmless unless you touch the easy bake oven.

Ryden and his wife both have some pretty questionable subject matter in their art. Nike CEO mostly collects Ryden’s Abe Lincoln pieces. Almost obsessively. Ryden is actually the favorite low brow artist of many members of the so called “elite”. Baron Hilton’s whole arm is a big Ryden tattoo. Mark Ryden is a total creep and his wife is even creepier.
