“The Place of The Skull” won first prize at the London Biennale 2019 and has been exhibited in London and Amsterdam. The Place of The Skull is a tribute to the child victims of war. I was influenced by Picasso’s Guernica which had a profound affect on me and I wanted to do a modern version of this painting. The Three figures in the background are images of torture victims at the infamous Abu Ghraib prison, I wanted to show how martyrs are born and how the torture crimes actually fanned the flames of terrorism and so we have a never ending cycle of bombing, resistance, torture, bombing, resistance, torture……

“The Place Of The Skull” is also available as a signed limited edition print, please see the “War and Conflict” series on the limited edition print section of the website..
