When the Revolution Starts

When the Revolution Starts

Finished work on a new piece that has taken many iterations to get to here. I'm pleased with the result.

‘When the Revolution Starts’ was inspired by ‘Liberty Leading The People’ by Eugène Delacroix – a classical painting depicting the French Revolution. In the original the main character is bare breasted, stripped of her dignity, but defiant. All around her are corpses. The message is that she would rather die than give in. We live in a time when again people are taking to the streets. They seem defiant, angry. But would they really die for the cause? Or has protest become a new form of entertainment?

This was collaborative piece working with US artist Todd Kale who provided the beautiful sketched background.

The print will be on sale online soon. Please get in touch with me if you'd like more details.
