Painting: Prada Police

Prada police is my latest painting from the Paste series.

It’s about the mindset of individuals who buy luxury brands they can’t afford to gain personal benefits such as social status, business deals or vanity. So eventually they become ‘prisoner of brands’. The policemen, police car and jail bars symbolize the capture of their mentality— being sucked into this never ending dilemma. It’s not an attack on the brand itself, but a depiction of people’s way of thinking and in my opinion, crude behavior. 

I used acrylic, enamel, spray paint, pencil, oil pastel fabric and paper. 60 x 40 inches. 2019.
