Under The Milky Way was created in Autumn 2011
"The piece portrays Gabriel the Archangel as a pilot giving a light to Cortez the Conquistador. In a world where God is nowhere to be found, his messenger Gabriel has nothing to do; the lighting of a cigarette for a man such as Cortez highlights the fall from grace and uselessness of a divine entity. This was one of the very first paintcans that I painted all the way around, creating a narrative that evolves as the viewer rotates the piece. The spray coating at the final stage of producing the piece left a milky haze, which lent itself to the title of the work. I have been painting on paintcans for a long time, so I just picked this one up and started drawing. I had no preconceived idea here, I just put charcoal to can and forms appeared. What began as a standard portrayal of an ace pilot/angel soon evolved as I kept going round the can. The drawing was done in a minute or two, it came out of nowhere. That's when you know something good is cooking, when images appear as though they had been waiting to emerge from the hidden corners of the mind. Sometimes it's as though I'm guided by invisible hands, and this piece is one result of that experience" - Ron Zakrin
What is unique about this piece?
Why should people buy this piece/print?
People should buy this because it's bad ass and a steal. Plus it is the first panoramic narrative on a paint can that I did.
