Afghan boy

I see the Man everywhere

“I see the Man everywhere” by James Earley

Original oil on canvas painting

40cm x 60cm

Year produced 2020

SOLD private collection USA.

Every where the Afghan child looks he sees conflict, he sees a threat. Imagine living your whole life with that fear. I can not begin to imagine it. I wanted to show an Afghan child proud of his heritage, proud of his country and his people yet if you look closely into his eyes you see what he sees which is the “Man”, the threat. I wanted to show this threat in every other square in the painting, you pick up a card and is it a good or bad card, you walk on a path and is it a safe or unsafe path? These questions forced upon a child whilst his childhood slips away.

I am happy to announce that 30% of all the proceeds of the sale will go to charity. The charities that I donate to are The Innocence Project based in the US and New Hope based in the UK. The Innocence Project’s mission is to free the staggering number of innocent people who remain incarcerated, and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment ( New Hope exists to serve individuals who are homeless or vulnerably-housed through the provision of accommodation and opportunities to transform lives (

The painting will be delivered professionally in a hand crafted frame and tracked and insured during delivery and will come with a signed certificate of authenticity. Delivery is free.
