How did you come to paint it?
Well, one of the ex-employees of Facebook saw the painting of my “This… is… Google!” painting and wanted to commission me on to do a Facebook version.
“This… is… Google!” painting
What is the Google work about?
I learned of the debate with Google senior ranks of the hacking against political rights activists into gmail accounts by the Chinese government. Then Google decided to move its operations out of mainland China to Hong Kong site only to avoid having to censor their own users for the Chinese government. I was floored by their decision to “do no evil” by sacrificing profits for good will.
Why did you use such a wild title?
As stated in the movie “Social Network” about the formation of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg had his first business cards actually printed with the text “I’m CEO bitch!” I verified this account as well. It really captures the wild days of the foundation and honesty of Facebook in the face of rigidity of social preconceptions as well.
What exactly are Facebook Stories?
These are the amazing stories of how long lost relatives found each other on Facebook, people founded great organizations via Facebook and other amazing discoveries. Its kind of a bragging rights site, but truly shows the amazing power of Facebook in people’s lives to make a difference for themselves and empower groups.
What are each of the scenes of Facebook about?
“My God help me survive this deadly love” painting
