The little man is being taken advantage of. This painting shows how I see the world now. the little now being toyed by the “stoytellers” of the society – the big corporations, the advertisers, the multinationals, the politicians, the corrupt. This toying involves a kind of emotional blackmail. They use their power and the power of their lies to lure the small man – he works hard for the wrong reasons. He works hard thinking about the essence of his education, profession, and family support. Behind everything, he is like a puppet being played on by the bigger men. I have used this mythical hues to showcase the backdrop of the situation now – our culture of community, hardwork, nature, and exchange. I also want to emphasize how little men are being used – ideas, passions, visions being stolen by the bigger players. Above all the stealing, taking advantage, and abuse, we only hear sugar-coated stories.
