Paintings and Art of Satsvarupa dasa Goswami

Has Satswarupa das Goswami gone totally crazy in his brain, is this Krishna Art? Satsvarupa's art work for display to the world on ISKCON related web sites reveal a mind full of ghastly, nightmarish visions, wracked with fear, doubt and anxiety. Below is Srila Prabhupada's opinion on this type of art:
Srila Prabhupada: "This is not a good style of painting. It is an artistic style for sense gratification only. I cannot encourage this style it should be stopped immediately. Paintings should be like the Deities, formal and worshipful. This type of painting is sentimental and not authorised. Paintings should be as our artists in New York are doing. Do not introduce any new styles." (Srila Prabhupada letter to Madhudvisa, 8 December 1973)
Obviously Satsvarupa das needs help, and fast. Our prescription is that he publicly admits he was never authorized to do what he is doing, that he renounce his stolen disciples and give them back to the person on whose behalf he was meant to be initiating all along - Srila Prabhupada.
