The artwork combines 3844 glass head pins into one image. Some quite infamous 'pricks' in history started their careers as quite ordinary and often just young tugs. It raises the question: what if we –when they were youngsters– would have been able to pin them down as the infamous 'pricks' they would become later in life…It's a question we can ask ourselves.


The least you can say is that they have a blood red handprint all over them and should be depicted with a border in the color of blood.


The artwork depicts the infamous Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu, who started off as a regular apprentice shoemaker but soon got involved in strikes and regular street fights. The artwork is based on a police photograph of Ceaușescu, taken in 1936, when he was 18 years old. Ceaușescu was at that time imprisoned for two years at Doftana Prison for Communist activities.
