The painting itself is actually part of a triptych and is about being a child playing war games in a conflict area. It portray myself wearing a traditional Burmese lungyi aiming with a toy gun made of bamboo. The idea came up when I was travelling in Karen state, Myanmar. An area that have been suffering from one of the longest ongoing civil wars in the world. During my travel I came across a lot of bamboo toy guns being sold in the streets and all I could think of was how it would actually be like being a child raised by war. Especially since when I was a child, when we played, it was always us versus them. Cowboys vs Indians. Police vs Thieves.
Israel and Palestine, 2011, Ink on paper, 76 X 56
