About The Artwork

This work is inspired by the famous novel "Animal Farm" by George Orwell, I wanted to portray the main character "Napoleon" because the novel left me utterly shook because of how accurate the control over masses and their opinions and believes was described, also the law making system the media, and how they worked in the general interest of the people ( pigs ) who were on top of the pyramid, and how they retained control over the other animals and kept them in an endless loop of thinking that all the suffering and taxation they had to endure and pay was for a bigger cause and that things will always get better when they didnt. They were also kept uneducated and uncertain of the truth with propaganda via Squeeler, another pig responsible for the media, (Which I also plan to make). What I wanted the viewer to feel, or at least cross their mind, was to just stare at the face of that same pig that says that you are right or you are wrong, and what is right for you or wrong for you, and that same pig that wants to profit and enforce rules only for his benefit. I chose that medium because you can say a lot of things with form, there is an aesthetical and philosophical meaning to shapes and their expression, and trough that expression I wanted to capture what I felt from George Orwell`s novel. The postament is made from brass because it mimicked gold, which would express his greed and how he sat upon it. About the style I chose a realistic conceptual Illustrative style because I thought it fitted the work most.
