"The theme of our artwork is ‘Riot’ and it depicts a giant young man wearing hoodie and bandana, spraying a policeman reduced to the size of an insect and trying to protect himself with his shield. We moved objects such as petrol cans and extinguishers in front of the piece to create an installation. The final step was to set them on fire to create the ultimate riot atmosphere."

One less criminal. The world is a better place for his death, though it is a shame the police had to pay the price to see it happen.

That word hardly means anything anymore, not in this world of constant excuses, double standards, and pathological acceptance of thins that should never be tolerated, much less glorified or exemplified. I understand you've presented some sort of an alternative here, with this artwork, but the message is the same and that is the root that must be pulled out.

The whole world is crazy. At least I'm consistent.

Blacks act as if their lives are so hard comparing to white people, they act as if all blacks are in poverty and all whites are living a prosperous life, guess what African America, we're not. Racism continues to be an issue because your community continues to bring back the United States dark past of Slavery and Jim Crow. Not all whites are racist, not all cops are bad, and not all blacks in America are acting the way you ignorant rioters are. In order to make peace, you must show peace.

It as nothing to do with black people or racism or poverty, all rioters are not ignorant.
Don't you get it ? It's about art, to spread a message as strong as a riot without violence.
We fight cops but instead of hitting them we hit them with powerful messages and beautiful art.
You could also watch a painting I did, also violent: theartofblouh.deviantart.com/a…
Graffiti is when art hits you with a baseball bat at the corner of the street, unexpected, massive...

I get your view point, but what will other people see in your art?

Nice concept ! Love the spray and the fact that the policeman is trying to extinguish the stuff in fire ! Very deep ^^

this sort of reminds me of the spray art/graffiti that Delsin does in Infamous: Second Son
