George Gittoes, artist and filmmaker, has documented some of the world’s most notorious conflicts for nearly 4 decades. He has been described variously as a pop artist, a figurative artist, a modernist and a post modernist. 

This series of paintings are not unrelated to his previous works. These abstract, mystical works are reminiscent of rarely seen Gittoes artworks from the late 1960’s They encapsulate everything that he has forever been trying to convey. Amidst all the pain and suffering, love can survive.
