Comfort of the Modern Slave

Second mural in his 2016 London adventure, based on a quote from Hermann Hesse’s ‘Steppenwolf’.
The text reads as follows:
“ For what I always hated and detested and cursed above all things was this contentment, this healthiness and comfort, this carefully preserved optimism of the middle classes, this fat and prosperous brood of mediocrity.”

The mural, curated by Unite 5 Gallery in London, addresses the numbness of our modern society and the discomfort some of us feel when confronted to what Hesse calls toneless, flat, normal and sterile life.
