Paintings – 2015 – Ana Akbar/انا اكبر


12 oils on canvas 20/40cm


Ana Akbar/I Am The Greatest is a tribute to the sun. To worship the sun is the base of every religion. Religion is used to gain power and legitimise war.

Ana Akbar/I Am The Greatest refers to the West and its material dogmas. Selfishness, greed, and addiction to renewal have become a new religion. Money is the criterion of all things.
The form and height width ratio of the works are the same as those of a banknote and in the underlying, now invisible layer of each piece, a note of 10 is painted.

Ultimately Ana Akbar is about me as an artist whom has to work within the ruling theme park/demonstration art culture.
I appoint the small and human works as the greatest.
