Four Horsemen

Through my preliminary work, I worked on my ideas regarding the role of ‘identity’. In this artwork, I was inspired by the horsemen of apocalypse painting because I think they are very cool, unique and creepy. Throughout the course I investigated concepts for each of the horsemen. First, I started designing ‘War’ in which I made reference to the videogame ‘Raid: Shadow legends’. The 2nd horseman, ‘Conquest’ I also made reference to the same video game. The 3rd horseman ‘Famine’ is rather simple, I got the idea from a figurine I have in my collection with the mouth exposing his whole stomach and the 4th horseman ‘Death’, I designed using my imagination and interests. All the horsemen represent my own traumatic dark past with a notable surrealist twist.
