Object information

I chose this artwork for object of the month, as it fits perfectly with the current climate.

Pogus gives a subtle, yet direct representation of the issues between police/authorities and the black community.
This painting shows the defiance, strength and confidence of Black identity in a foreign climate. As a picture, it speaks a thousand words and screams for the need for acceptance and equality.
