The Father of a Nation was inspired by the 46th National Day. As many referred to His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan as the “The Father of a Nation”, I wanted to create a portrait in honour of him.
I used acrylic paint with a monochrome colour scheme for the portrait and for contrast in the background I used a variety of different recycled materials for the flag. The materials range from Coca-Cola cans, Nespresso Coffee capsules as well as white milk, cereal, toothpaste and soap boxes.
