FanBoy vs ArtBoy: 7 Deadly Sins

FanBoy vs ArtBoy: 7 Deadly Sins
ArtBoy are doing something a little different for their ArtBoy vs FanBoy exhibition this time round. The've gone a little bit serious with the theme 7 Deadly Sins. 

The 7 Deadly Sins have been part of Catholic teachings dating as far back as the 6th century and though not actually referenced in the Bible, a list of things "God doesn't like" was reinterpreted and adopted by the Catholic Church as a moral compass by which all should live by.

Over centuries the list of 'naughty things' became the sins we know them as today:
  • Pride - The sin of vanity
  • Lust  - The sin of desire
  • Gluttony - The sin of excess
  • Sloth - The sin of laziness
  • Envy - The sin of jealousy
  • Greed - The sin of selfishness
  • Wrath - The sin of rage
From the 14th Century onwards the 7 Deadly Sins have been an inspiration for writers, performers and artists.  These days the Sins are subtly suggested or overtly obvious as framework in video games, comics, music, blockbuster movies and tv.

So what have I been tempted to paint for it? Well... I've done a colab with fellow stencil artist Floh and have taken out of storage some of my pieces about the fur industry, but you'll have pop along to the exhibition to see them.

Oh, and if you are tempted in being apart of the exhibition too the deadline for submissions is the 14 February.
