Lest We Forget
About the painting
“Lest We Forget” is a phrase used in remembrance services and the only wording engraved on most war cenotaphs. The words were first written in an 1897 poem called “Recessional”, written by English writer Rudyard Kipling regarding the dangers of “failing to remember”.
The actual virus was painted using my distinctive “colorist art” techniques that I’ve developed over the past years. The background of the painting symbolizes the drab greyish granite rock that most memorials are constructed with. The Covid-19 virus that I visualized is the same image that has been seen worldwide in most communication medias. The original illustration was initially commissioned by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia (USA).
My intent in reproducing this similar image was to create a Covid-19 virus that was totally recognizable to one and all.
