International Police State

Every once in a while I look at what’s happening to the world and wonder. Then it somehow percolates through my brain and I decide to do another picture. This one came about after reading about the Opium Wars of the 19th century whereby the British came to define term ‘gunboat diplomacy‘. Then a swift look at the news today reveals how little things have really changed in almost 200 years. It’s always about the biggest stick – as lovingly displayed by this armoured police sergeant.

He’s A3 in size and is made using the magic of spraypaint, stencils and screen printing. Signed on reverse.

Here is the ebay link
