This piece comes across as strong and purposeful, the statement as loud as the pulsating and determined colours that linger around the canvas. Despite how strong it comes off as, the message is very unclear, ambiguous and closed, and it is only up to the viewer what to make of it. Raduan toys with the concept of man-made objects here, one that is strongly associated with London – the red telephone box, which serves as the focus point which takes centre stage, attracting viewers to dissect the meaning and concept behind this masterpiece, especially with numbers that adorn the right side of the canvas.
