Untitled (Gone Mad) and more art by Chittaprosad

Untitled (Gone Mad)
13 x 7.8 inch (h x w)
Linocut

In the 1950s Chittaprosad started creating a series of images that he called ‘the children series’. Here against the backdrop of urbanisation and industrial growth he depicted the plight of children in poverty. This searing image of a boy snatching morsels to eat from a crow, is deliberately disconcerting. It begs the question ‘who has gone mad?’

The image uses the iconography of the heroic socialist figure as prescribed by the Zhdanov Doctrine of 1946 that was followed by the Communist Party, but uses it to reveal the reality of suffering and struggle.
