Weapon Of Choice by Steve Whelan
Weapon of choice is a multi-color stencil piece on canvas using acrylic spray paint. Weapon of Choice is my statement to society that peace and harmony can be established with music, not war.
Being a DJ, I see all ages, sizes and nationalities join together in dance putting their differences behind them, even if it's for a short while. Replacing the tank turret with a turntable arm/needle is not immediately noticeable until you realize the only damage this weapon can do is to your eardrums.
In keeping with the theme, I framed the piece with 1 1/2" pipe and finished it in a textured metallic finish, which I think compliments the piece, giving it an urban industrial look.
