We've seen a new type of government advertisement - the 'Look them in the eyes' has a very important message to stay inside. Drawing inspiration from these, WW2 propaganda and the iconic pop culture image of 'Big Brother', I wanted to create a piece that invoked that feeling of eyes on you. The red is sharp and almost violent, and the eyes stare unseeing from the canvas, as if daring you to meet their gaze.
