Collection Note:
Schoony exploded onto the London art scene in 2008 after unveiling a street art installation outside of the house of parliament as an anti-war protest. His iconic life-cast sculpture Boy Soldier, a shirtless boy soldier wearing an oversized military helmet, has since taken many iterations and been accompanied by his Bruiser motif, a young girl wearing oversized boxing gloves, seen here.

Schoony’s imagery—whether in sculptural relief, canvas, or print—incorporates themes of commercialism, violence, and kitsch, exploring contemporary Western society’s detached relationship to warfare.
