Dirty Red Dogs
C Flux Illustrate
This is a Digital Art piece I created for an Art show based on Police Brutality. The name of the show was called “Enough Iz Enough – Artists United Against Police Brutality” and held at The City Of Ink(Atlanta Tattoo Shop) for their 2nd Year Anniversary. It was created in light of the violence stemming from the police in our communities but more recently at the time, The Oscar Grant Incident.
The “Red Dogs” is a police force here in Atlanta that was known for starting trouble in our communities. They roll in black vans(with the door open at times) ready to jump out and harass people. Goodie Mob made mention of them in their 1995 hit song called “Dirty South”. I used the metaphor and placed vicious dog heads on the bodies of police officers to give people a sense of how intense and violent some of these police/community situations are.
