Coverage

Queen Street West at John Street

Context

This painting was designed to subvert an advertising campaign for Black Label beer. This was a beer company that supported South African apartheid. The bottom of painting was covered in barbed wire and it was not a good idea. A second piece about white supremacy used a similar design.
