The picture "Bad Ass Mickey 2" relies on the first painting from the “Bad Ass Mickey” cycle and it is, in a way, an expanded version of that artwork. It depicts, in a humorous way, the situation in which we have found ourselves in 2020.
Here, Mickey is confronted by a benevolent bear sitting on trash cans. The bear’s arm is in a cast, he’s got a Band-Aid on his head and he is protesting by carrying a banner that reads: "Now you've pissed off Teddy Bear!!!"
On the other hand, Mickey is happy and he’s smiling with sharp colorful teeth. He is bathed in the glitter of crystals and banknotes.
The contrast is further accentuated with graffiti-strewn bricks, an old worn-out bicycle and, as we have already pointed out, the benign and injured teddy bear who sits on trash bins while on the other side we have the shiny, smiling and dazzling Mickey.
To put an additional accent on Mickey, Swarovski crystals were used – 10,000 of crystals were implemented on the hand, teeth, pants and shoes.
Banknotes have been specially designed and made for this painting. In addition to being painted on the artwork itself, the banknotes also come in paper form.
The painting comes in 2 versions – with two different frames. There is an ornamental neo baroque frame in black and its counterpart in gold. You can easily switch from one frame to another. Both frames present strong contrasts to the atmosphere of the painting. Furthermore, they significantly contribute to the message that is to be conveyed and thus become an inseparable part of the painting itself.
