The inspiration behind this paintwork is the promotional poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It features simply a heavily abused shield and the image has been stuck in my head for the following 7 years since the theatrical release. View attachment 1495342
Eventually I decided I NEED to bring it into material form and get it out of my system.
Last year I attempted to acquire a raw shield from two of the leading metal shield makers in the US, but they refused to ship to Singapore. So I resorted to ordering one from a maker in Shenzhen, China and it was sufficiently acceptable as a canvas. It's made out of aluminium alloy and weighs 5kg!
