The Hanging Banker and Other Occupy Art
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.

The Occupy movement has gone international, and at Occupy London, artist K-Guy dropped a "carpet bomb" last month in the form of visual social commentary. Dude has a lot of neat work you should check out.
6. Crocheted Cube
The Alamo, better known by New Yorkers as The Cube, was originally installed in 1967, but last month, Polish-born, American-based artist Olek gave it an Occupy facelift. The artist crocheted the 1,800-pound cube and knitted the words, "I'm still proud of what I do for a living." Take that, business school.
