Image Description: This acrylic painting was inspired by Andy Warhol. There are four squares. Each background is brightly colored, teal, blue, yellow, magenta. In each square there are silhouettes of muscular men in chains. In each square, they progressively get more free. And the square on the top left, one man is breaking the chains. The next image has two men breaking the chains. The third image has three men breaking the chains in the fourth image. All four men are breaking the chains with their fists raised high.
