“With so many people taking to the streets to protest would they really die for a cause? Or has protest become a new form of entertainment? ”

When the Revolution Starts - Large

 

BACKGROUND STORY

‘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 work was done in collaboration with US artist, Todd Kale.
