A new commissioned mural to help promote #StickBoyOpera by Shane Koyczan for the The Vancouver Opera. The campaign created by DDB Canada asked a collection of Artists to tell their own story based on the theme “There’s a monster in all of us“.
My mural called ‘Internal Battle‘ is my portrayal of the bully (the monster).
Children often fight their own internal battles, either big or small. For really troubled kids, that can become an external struggle that ultimately leads to their transition into an aggressor, a bully, a monster. It’s a vicious cycle, one that ends up with many victims including the bully themselves.
The mural is roughly 17′ tall painted with Montana Gold paint. Vertical support by Terry Kaufenberg and his fork lift. The mural is up by my studio at 1000 Parker St. in Vancouver. Here are more photos:
