Description: What have Josef Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Gaddafi, Mao Zedong, Saddam Hussein, Tony Blair, George Bush Jnr and Abraham Lincoln got in common with Angry Bird? The juxtaposition is odd but you’ll never know what will happen in the future with violence all around (top right corner) and with so many baddies around like the evil Western axis of George Bush Jnr and Tony Blair, who started a carnage based on a suspicion of some non-existent weapons of mass destruction. The little boy in the picture may look innocent and protected by a safety helmet, but armed with a kick-ass toy like Angry Bird, you’ll never know. This Khairul Arshad work was shown in the Neu4 Group exhibition at Pace Gallery (now Nadine Fine Art) in 2013, together with buddies Azrin Mohd, Nasir Che Din and Hafidz Shabri. He was selected for the Art KL-Melbourne at space@collins in Melbourne, Australia, in 2014.
