‘Spirit of Marius’
Acrylics on canvas - painted using my hands only [no brushes]
100 x 100 cms
“Spirit of Marius” was inspired after the tragic event of Marius the giraffe who was killed in Copenhagen Zoo, representatives of which claimed he did
not fit into the zoo’s breeding program, and dissected in front of an audience of children for ‘educational purposes’. This event affected me intensely and some
force swept me up and I poured out all my emotion, using my bare hands and paint, onto the canvas.
