On 3rd September 2017 North Korea claimed to have successfully tested a hydrogen bomb. Hydrogen bombs are considered much deadlier and more devastating compared to a standard nuclear bomb. If launched on any western city, thousands would die.
This painting depicts North Korean leader Kim Jong-un inspecting a hydrogen bomb and was inspired by the photograph below. The bomb appears to be resting on a wooden structure, painted green and in the background is a large cone with a yellow point.
To my delight, this painting was winner of the Judges Prize at the 2017 Mytholmroyd Open Art Exhibition, along with a cheque for £200.00.
