The ability to change the colour of the octopus inspired me to produce this painting which in fact changes colour through LED lights. I chose more precisely a Blue Ringed Octopus because its skin has a particularly fascinating basic pattern. This species of octopus is very poisonous, a characteristic that suggested to me the title “The Blue Ringed Army”: I imagined those tentacles, which are more correctly called arms, like a fatal army.
The LED lights are positioned inside the frame on which the plexiglass panel, the pictorial support, is mounted. The energy-saving lights operate by a cable to the power supply. All the light system is part of the work and is provided by me.
This artwork has already been sold, but I am willing to paint similar works also on commission. Please send me your request on the Contact page.
