Life Force lives in a world that is full of death, pain, and hopelessness. In this world, everyone has been infected with Covid-19 except Life Force. He was born with the power of cure. He finally devoted himself to save the world without hesitation. After that, the world is clear and clean. But nobody remembers Life Force.
Dave Behrens commenced painting in acrylics in 2002 to explore the theme of identity. It’s a theme that investigates the identity of self predominately, yet. He is drawn to the concept of identity in others. He uses mark-making and pattern forming to express these ideas of identity. There’s an intention to use colors and associations to commit ideas to address this expression.
I am a traditional painter and use acrylic paint to create bold and colourful works of art featuring symbols and mark making. My inspiration of designing a SuperGiro came from my painting from 2020 called “Pill of Life” which was a symbolic work created in response to COVID-19 whilst in lockdown in Melbourne. I created digital imprints of some of the symbols from that painting and adorned the body of SuperGiro to create a bold and colourful figure. SuperGiro is Life Force!
