The Apocalypse


243.84 x 152.4 cm | 96 x 60 in

Oil on canvas

  • Honorable Mention / Imaginative Realism

The Covid pandemic has signalled the onset of what many believe to be oneof the signs of the "end times", a biblical, apocalyptic message from Heaven of the tribulation that must happen before final redemption.

The artwork ruefully depicts street dwellers with no other recourse but to keep living and surviving, facing the evil head-on without fear and pushing on towards survival.   Their dogs often treated as part of the family, give them a semblance of normalcy even as the realistic graffiti of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse loom in the background.
