ABOUT THIS ART

This piece of original art comes ready to hang.


"This piece was created as part of my 'Fury' art show in 2012. 'Fury' was a mythological re-imagining of our frenzied new cycle, with a particular focus on the revolution-type imagery coming out in the wake of the G8/G20 riots, the various occupy movements and the Arab Spring. Putting the current mayhem against a larger, more timeless backdrop, I was partly inspired by 19th painting by the likes of Eugene Delacroix ('Liberty Leading the People') and also the Greek Theban Plays.

I was also influenced by the medieval notion of death as a soothing female figure and bringer of sleep. The transition between eras was also a major thematic point of of the series. With older architectural elements contrasted against the current actors on our streets. Finally the Sphinx is an ancient symbol wielding the riddle of death." - Billy Norrby

This piece of original artwork comes signed by Billy Norrby and with an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 1xRUN.
