Original Painting – Circa March 2012 – 48″x36″ (122cm x91cm) Acrylic On Canvas – Hand Painted Sides
A simple piece about violence in video games. At their core, games are pure and innocent, so I made this one as offensive as possible. That’s why I included the anti-authority theme. Games like Grand Theft Auto always drew more media outcry than ones like Super Mario Bothers. If I’d made my opener to “Friendly Competition” pure and innocent it wouldn’t draw as much attention, so I didn’t.
