About this artwork
Artist Krzysztof Iwin painted this piece as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A young man sits at his window wearing a prisoner's uniform and a face mask over his eyes. He is accompanied by the symbolic elements of a free bird sitting on the windowsill, and a pet cat hiding in the shadows. This is a reference to uncritical, blind faith in media coverage, propaganda and manipulation transmitted on TV, explains Krzysztof.
