Mr. Boy edition of 6 prints started with the classical red flag of Hong Kong with Bauhinia blakeana fower which is a symbol of HK. Followed by a black version of the flag used in protests in 2019. Bauhinia flower is slowly degrading in his form as a symbol of the connection between the People Republic of China and Hong Kong citizens. Black flag variation used by protesters is considered by Police in Hong Kong as a law violation.

Mr Data | Mr Boy
Where fiction meets reality.
Mr. Data / Mr. Boy is a series of paintings related to current global events. Starting from the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris and finishing at the Hong Kong protest in 2019-2020. Flags and letters mixed with "faces" of hegemony and jurisdiction over an individualism of a unit. Regardless of the times, Big Brother "care" exists, presented in totalitarian or digital form (face). Tatara adds a sentence to Orwellian "Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past. + Who controls the data controls present." He tries to look at reality through Big Brother's eye, and create his modest pieces of art.
