As the title infers, there are a lot of battles going on here. Besides the obvious survival struggle between the two birds, there is also the battle between property owners and police against the street artists. ln the street artist culture there is a battle for respect and bragging rights( especially if they don't get caught) in the competition to create the best "walls" with set rules and boundaries that are to be honored. l searched for a long time for the right piece of street art. Many pieces were just too bright and overpowering but this piece, done in more earth tones was perfect for the idea l had in mind. The result is a painting that was a joy to do as well as an education to another art culture. This painting is marked NFS as it was completely destroyed in my studio fire.
