The Original Fake News???

Kenn Vidro's avatar Kenn Vidro

My entry for this year's Artprize is titled "The Original Fake News?", a look at our pre-historic friends...the dinosaurs. It is a "tongue & cheek" statement on how the dinosaurs might have responded to the news that asteroids were going to hit the earth and eventually destroy all of them. Of course there are many theories as to how they became extinct from the theories of global warming to the asteroid theory. With that in mind....when a triceratops reads the headlines in the "Jurassic Times"(center painting) is he indeed reading "The Original Fake News" or is it in fact the truth...we may never know ! Of course factions from the left as well as the right are very interested nonetheless. My piece was created with acrylic paint on stretched canvas. Hope you enjoy it !
