DOOMSDAY IS HERE!
Our world is filled with madness. We are bombarded daily with countless stories of terror, tragedy, and hatred. It has become a mind-numbing assault on the world’s collective consciousness. Fear and dread have become the norm, and even our most successful entertainment has become shock driven.
To address it all in one startling, powerful piece, Executive Producer Farley Malorrus commissioned innovative multi-media artist and graphic designer Shadoe Stevens to create a mural-sized, “anti-violence, end of the world” masterpiece called “Doomsday.” To see it go to ShadoeArt.com
Stevens has created a work that explores the face of reality, doubt, and the constant barrage of media-driven fear, in a work of dense imagery and colorful optical illusions. This is an unsettling visual journey through intensely colorful and engaging - sometimes terrifying, sometimes humorous - imagery. Stevens calls his artistic approach: “Transcendental Wha Hoo” and “Time-Released Mirth.”
Depicting numerous 'end of days,' and 'extinction level events' from the media, current news, science, politics, movies, TV shows, Graphic novels, and Biblical Tribulation, “Doomsday” contains images of everything from tsunamis and climate change, to suicide bombers, drug addiction, epidemics, zombies, and Godzilla.
The work sets out to suggest mankind has the option of focusing within to find the spirit of love, forgiveness, compassion, and Peace on Earth, or a blind acceptance of the imminent inevitable: chaos, death, destruction, and extermination of everything around us.
Do we surrender to the dark side of our nature or merge in unity, and face the future with a new and uncommon strength within? Can we embrace the dawn of an end of bigotry, end of violence, end of racism, intolerance, resentment, and hate?
Doomsday is a dazzling statement from the mind of Shadoe Stevens, channeling the inspiration of Farley Malorrus, revealing the proposition that the Spirit must control the Mind. Our Free Will - suggested by all the world’s major religions - is that we all have the POWER TO CHOOSE.
It is like a new Guernica, Picasso’s famous painting about war and suffering. Doomsday is about the Truth of Life all around us. It is about the Truth that lies within us. Can you handle the Truth? To see Shadoe's Art CLICK HERE.
SHADOE ART - DEBUTS EXCLUSIVELY IN FLORIDA
Starting March 15th, original art by Shadoe Stevens will be shown exclusively in Florida, at Stakenborg - Greenberg Fine Art Gallery in Sarasota. The gallery, a treasure trove of art for the fine art collector, with some of the greatest artists in history and today, features: Salvador Dali, Rembrandt, Picasso, Larry Rivers, Ronin, and now, Shadoe Stevens.
One critic described Shadoe’s work as “Illumination of Spirit,” a 21st Century William Blake. Merging familiar forms with optical illusions, Shadoe's art explores metaphysical conundrums with intricate and abstract images, shapes, and perspective to create explosive visual statements in richly saturated colors. These impossible constructions are designed to create contradictions that engage the mind with three dimensional illusions on two dimensional planes.
The pieces are multi-media - graphic collage, pen, and acrylic, printed on Saunders Waterford - hand made paper for the U.K. - hand signed in pencil. Shadoe describes his work as "Transcendental Wha-Hoo." The gallery is at 1545 Main Street in Sarasota. Click here for more:
