STYLE: Fauna Surrealism
Part of my Gas Mask Series. I began with the piece FK U British Petroleum and I wanted to expand the concept to a bigger scene. I am fascinated by Octopus. They are some of the smartest animals in the ocean. I wanted to the scene to be near a shipwreck an inference to the human footprint in the ocean. The gas mask provides commentary on human polution in the ocean. Some of the smaller fish are also equipped.
I wound up selling it to a very nice creative couple in Ft Lauderdale. I was supposed to give them a quote to paint a camper but unfortunately life events prevented me to do so, however I was happy the piece found a great home.
