"Little Big Man Black On Red" is a silkscreen print by Cleon Peterson, an American artist known for his bold, graphic style and provocative themes. Peterson's work often explores the darker aspects of human nature, such as violence, power struggles, and societal chaos. His art is heavily influenced by his experiences with drug addiction and recovery, which give his work a unique perspective on the human condition. In "Little Big Man Black On Red," Peterson employs his signature high-contrast color palette, featuring black figures puppeteering President Donald Trump set against a bright red/orange background. The silkscreen print depicts a chaotic scene of figures engaged in various acts of violence and domination. This piece is part of a larger body of work by Peterson, which often addresses themes of power dynamics and the cyclical nature of violence. As a silkscreen print, "Little Big Man Black On Red" is produced using a stencil-based printing process. In this method, an artist creates a stencil, or screen, for each color layer in the artwork. Ink is then pushed through the screen onto a surface, such as paper or canvas. This process allows for the creation of multiple identical prints, which are typically produced in limited editions and signed by the artist. The silkscreen technique is often used by artists for its ability to produce bold, vibrant colors and clean, sharp lines, which are evident in Peterson's striking compositions.
