Art of War is an art project and poster series exploring humanity’s most troubling and pervasive trait. The futility and farce of waging war upon people we have never met due to man-made constructs like nationalism, race superiority, religion, and geographical borders is humanity’s greatest failing. Yet the universal and historical prevalence of war leaves us with an undeniable sense that it is intrinsically human, and perhaps unavoidable. Art of War began with a hand-grenade painted as a Rubiks Cube; a representation of war as a puzzle we can’t quite seem to solve. Objects of war were collected and hand painted with comical design elements in bright primary colours to draw attention to the bewildering insanity of self-extermination.
