A rainbow of bold shapes performs a chaotic dance beneath a flurry of black drawing and texture. Defiant and brave, the work breaks the boundaries of abstract art with pride. Adopting a primitive language that values a childlike approach, it is free from conventions and able to be enjoyed without restrictive standards. Paired with a poem by Guy Levis Mano, "The traitor in the walled city," the image illustrates the triumphant moment when art overcomes the accepted rules.
