"I’ve been fixated on billboards for a long time and they are definitely
a recurring theme in my work. To me, it is a symbol of power and
manipulation, where the media not only broadcasts messages to their
audience, they actively watch and collect data on us as well. As I’ve
illustrated Earth Crusher leaning out of the billboard to observe his
lowly subjects, I imagine the major media owners (i.e. the Zuck) looking
over us with eyes that never close.
This piece is created using plain ol’ acrylic paint on wood panel during
the winter of 2016/17. The idea started from a photo I took in Windsor,
Ontario when I was in town painting a mural in 2015. I liked that I
took with the man walking along the sidewalk, and I thought it would be a
good fit to have him being looked down on from the billboard. When I
got back home, I put on a suit and did a little photo shoot for
reference and put it all together. I never really time myself when it
comes to paintings, but from concept to completion I’d say a month or
two." - Earth Crusher
ABOUT THE ARTIST:

At Earth Crusher, there is always a suite of quality projects under development and a portfolio of global exploitation projects to ensure profitable development opportunities for the future. Projects like slavery, deforestation, lethal tobacco production, toxic chemical production, tactical weapons systems, torture techniques, apple pie, unsustainable farming, intrusive surveillance systems, asbestos mining, and the list goes on.
No other entity on earth can guarantee the same investment security as Earth Crusher. With a complete lack of moral compass, we are able to concentrate solely on generating profit and nothing else.
