Artist Kaz Ooka
New York, New York USA
The artist was motivated to paint this “American Square” when he learned that sales of guns, particularly of semi-automatic rifles jumped up. This is totally opposite phenomenon that the painter anticipated after the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting occurred on Dec. 14, 2012. America seems to have not only a racial division, but also pro-gun vs anti-gun division as deep as the racial matter. The artist stands clearly on anti-gun proponent.
Viewing so many movies and dramas in which guns take a major role or are used as the final solution, viewers feeling against guns get numb yet fear to other side of people becomes very exaggerated. As a matter of fact, many viewers of this painting do not notice that all billboard pictures are of guns.
