In this oil painting I have combined a number of artistic styles. The work is influenced by both collage and Japanese art. It offers a social commentary about the loss of privacy, and with it the ubiquity of CCTV in the urban environment. Like many of my paintings, I have created a picture within a picture, in this case a painting I observed on a building in Manchester. The foreground figure is ‘Everyman’, oblivious to his surroundings and the existential threat posed by his environment.  In doing so I wished to convey the idea that if one thinks one is being watched it is not necessarily paranoia. Have a nice day.
