Shok-1 'RGB Trinity' 2011. 

Painted right after London's summer riots of 2011 this large scale piece on Borough High Street references the visual display colours of red, green and blue.     

I'll let Shok himself explain.... 

"Red, green and blue light are combined to produce the picture in TV's, computers, mobile phones and practically any other type of screen you can think of. Through these three simple colours, information enters our brains and changes them in infinite permutations. 

This is an attempt to paint the terrible beautiful power of it all. In the light of the riots in London while it was painted, I also see the red as symbolising violence and fire, the green for money and envy, and the blue for coldness and the authorities"
