“Israel and Palestine” published online

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , — cap @ 1:53 am

This piece titled “Israel and Palestine” was just published on the online art site called Scene360/Illusion. Illusion is in their on words “The Illusion site is dedicated to featuring the most amazing creations in art, design, photography, technology and video. It displays projects of individuals with astonishing skills and creativity. From intricately cut paper art to live grass graffiti—one thing is certain, you will often think “WOW!””

The painting itself is actually part of a triptych and is about being a child playing war games in a conflict area. It portray myself wearing a traditional Burmese lungyi aiming with a toy gun made of bamboo. The idea came up when I was travelling in Karen state, Myanmar. An area that have been suffering from one of the longest ongoing civil wars in the world. During my travel I came across a lot of bamboo toy guns being sold in the streets and all I could think of was how it would actually be like being a child raised by war. Especially since when I was a child, when we played, it was always us versus them. Cowboys vs Indians. Police vs Thieves.
