This is a painting called THE TEN RULES OF TERRORISM by Peter Reynosa. It is graffiti art. It is an acrylic painting on poster paper. The artist was very much influenced by Basquiat when he did this painting. It is his observations on terrorism.
This is a painting called The Tragedy of Man by Peter Reynosa. It is a portrait of Barack Obama as a slave in agony. It is an acrylic on canvas. It is 24x30. I decided to do a work of art about President Barack Obama. I decided to portray him as a slave not to degrade or demean him but to point out the fact that had he been born in America sometime in the past he could have been born a slave. The horror of this painting is not that someone painted Barack Obama as a slave, but that if Barack Obama had been born 150 years ago in America he could have been born a slave. And I did the painting in black and white to suggest how a black man was once completely trapped in a white world if he was born in America. And I purposefully used his body image but tried to make the head look like a humanoid creature and not exactly like his head. This is to stress the fact how slavery left a person barely recognizable as a human being. And the shape of the head I got from Edvard Munch's The Scream, at least the top part of the head.
