The Hanging Banker and Other Occupy Art

Because the 99% includes everybody--except of course the blindly über rich--all types of folks are contributing to the movement. Musicians have partnered up to hold demonstrative jam sessions, poets have written endless lines reflecting the 99%'s overall sentiment, and of course, artists have tackled the message the best way they know how, visually.

From publicly humiliated Wall Street bankers to a broke Rich Uncle Pennybags, the Occupy movement has produced some incredible art. And with Art Basel Miami Beach just a month away, we can't help but wonder how much of it will end up right here in our city.

Check out some of our favorite pieces inspired by the Occupy movement after the jump.
