Agent X, ‘Neoptolemus District 8 Star Symbol’, 2017, Addicted Art Gallery

Good To Know: Artwork is shipped directly from the artist.

Series: 2017 Fall Collection Agent X's new series deals with questions about dystopia. Are we in the middle of a cataclysmic decline in society? Is it too late to turn things around so we're living in a utopia? Agent X has a few words about the direction his new series has taken... “Planet Earth has gone to shit! Between Trump, misogyny, racism, war, genocide, etc. I had to get off the planet and so did my art. The way I did this was by going back to the movies that inspired me as a kid, and now as an adult - films like Interstellar, Blade Runner, Star Wars and other Sci-Fi cinema.”

Signature: Hand signed and numbered

Arty-Fact: Neoptolemus, according to Greek legend, was the son of Achilles. In the Trojan War, he proved himself brave but cruel. He killed Priam at the altar of Zeus and threw Astyanax, son of Hector, from the wall of Troy.

Neoptolemus was the youngest of the Greek warriors at the time - also the most savage and cruel (in direct contrast to his father, Achilles).

In ‘Neoptolemus District 83 Star Symbol’, Neoptolemus' cruelty and visage are represented in fractured graffiti and vibrant primary colours.
