Artwork Description

Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

Hokusai's "Great Wave off Kanagawa" print is one of the most perfect compositions ever created. It blends beauty and elegance perfectly with destruction with chaos: one of the fundamental visual conflicts that is difficult to balance. I have recreated Hokusai's image in a number of different styles and versions, both embroidered and painted.

This particular painting took many years to complete, and went through a variety of changes. I wanted to depict the wave through an urban lens, as if scrawled onto a wall and torn down. Layers of stencilling, spray paint and impasto oil paint make this possible. The usually peaceful sky in the original print is presented with as an apocalyptic rampage signifying great destruction. I'm really pleased with the result and consider it one of my best works.
