Peace Strike [Update: Boy Soldier by Schoony]

January 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This is an incredible piece of work, a Hans Soloesque slab containing a child representative of Diane Arbus’ Boy with a Toy Hand Grenade in Central Park. After quite a bit of searching I’m unable to locate the artist, but it appears to be a piece submitted to Peace Strike as part of their current collaboration with Art Below via this brief interview on Don’t Panic. Anybody have some info?

Update: This piece has been attributed to Schoony. (thnx, stephen)
