We, His Friends by kinnas We, His Friends by kinnas
2010, 2x3 meters, acrylics and other shit (Including but not limited to wax, mud, beer, milk, lipstick, cloth and maybe piss I can't remember). Was a part of my BA project titled "Of Nihilism"

A short summary of the writeup for the painting:
I dislike the word but lets say it's a meditation on hatred. I try to rise above it but in reality I am a very bitter and a very petty man. In a way I live for revenge. Revenge against the bus driver, against the boring people I've had to suffer, against the assholes who broke my nosebone, against the first girl who said "yes", against the clumsy art teachers who have wasted my time. Revenge on everyone. I have this need for revenge, I cannot be at peace. I have to either be a ridiculous success or destroy myself entirely. Deprive the world of my participation, my talents. In reality idiotic ramblings of an arrogant madman, in my own mind a majestic gesture as I inform you "You are not deserving of my company."

Really cool talent you have there, it feels very eerie and mysterious.

There's something about this that just inspires me so much, thank you for that.

Reminds me of Banksy. Very nice.
Please choose to be a ridiculous success. Cutting off your nose to spite your face probably won't make a lasting impression on anyone but yourself, but future historic fame will sure show that bus driver what for.

Well, as they say, to create art is to express one's emotions...
I don't think I would have initially tied all of those emotions and thoughts to this piece, but taking them and looking back at it does make for an interesting second look.

And, if it's any comfort, recognizing one's own (current, past) limitations is a very good thing to be able to do, I think. So, bravo, sir.
Love the powerful and angry brushstrokes - the composition is beautiful and you definitely communicate the emotion behind the piece.
very original, trully awasome!
Wow ... truly inspiring.
First, let me say how eerie and beautiful this image is. Something I wish I saw more of in the art galleries I visit. But I giggled and had to do a second take when I read "I am a very bitter and a very petty man." cause I read it as Pretty instead of Petty. I think you may be both. Great work man.
