The artwork took about 4 weeks to complete however unlike much of my work photo realistic rendering was not the technical priority. My aim was for it to lie somewhere between a comic book story board & a photo realistic drawing.
The real aim of course was to just to tell a little story. Subsequently it’s my most political artwork I have ever created.
Images speak louder than words, and the images below should help explain a little further…
Below photo shows the framed artwork in a group exhibition hanging next to a Giclee canvas print of it’s counter part “Corporatocracy”. These two artworks are tightly linked together. More intel on that artwork and the ideas behind them both here.
