The Bird man of Alcatraz

The Bird man of Alcatraz
Photo Description:
A mixed media acrylic painting of Robert Franklin Stroud in his mug shot taken in Alcatraz prison in California. The large feather wings represent two perspectives to this piece: the representation that Robert Franklin Stroud was famously known as 'the Bird man' and secondly, the idea that he has lost his freedom. This painting was produced last year for a year 12 AS level mock exam.
