This oil painting is part of my Dog Headed series, exploring the aggressive and violent side to mans nature. This piece was inspired by stories of gang culture and youth crime, which have been prominent in the media in recent years. With many gangs now using aggressive dogs as a weapon to show street status I felt the combination of man and dog was quite apt.
Jerzy Szechynski A Thoughtful composition, looks like the beginning of a series addressing an issue that is at the forefront not only in the UK but around the world. One stipulation though, to say, "..Exploring the aggressive and violent side to man's nature", is a statement that to me as a man is quite offensive. I hope you're not 'painting' all men with the same brush. If this is relevant to your personal experiences then I say, "I'm sorry".
