Stereotype

This is a series of paintings I did to vent about the demonisation of working-class kids as dangerous. Each painting is of a figure layered with pain and/or silliness, but that's buried behind a filter of distortion from the style I've painted them in. It's just like real life in the sense that stereotypes distort reality. I worked on black backgrounds to represent night time. The connection's probably obvious between the medium of spray paint and the working-class.
