Where do I start with this work of profound magic, topical, gutsy and above all it was done by you Jovan. xoxo
Thank you Antzy, you are the coolest and the most phantasmagorical chick in the stratosphere! : D
– John Dicandia ( JinnDoW )
Beautiful image and title that tells a story of a beautiful face remembered but surfaces scratches and scars of pain. Lovely work John.

Striking! It popped out of the feed! Love it!
Thank you so much Laura. : D
great song and video. never heard it so thanks for turning me onto it.sheesh!! what a great piece here John. That face is captivating, intense little girlish . . the crytic graphic imagery around the border is electricfying and how you combine cupcake sweet with breathlessly dangerous and edgy is a marvelous testimony to your power as an artist/communicator.Talent of your caliber could be extremely influencial in political and social venues. I ’m serious. u stay true. x
I know, I absolutely love this song and video. Went to Number one in the US. Goyte or Gauthier ( Belgian for Walter ) is an Australian indie musician from here in Melbourne and he used to live two suburbs away from me. I saw him live when he was with a band called The Basics around 10 years ago. In reference to the painting I could have called it “Somebody Free Pussy Riot” but that would have been blatantly obvious. I enjoy challenging the viewer by serving up extremities and I love exploring the dualities in human character and personality as in this piece. PS : I’m thinking of posting this on the official Pussy Riot website as it might generate some interest hopefully
Free Pussy Riot, very nice indeed!
They should free them! What a travesty of justice! : D
great work and design john….terrible to be imprisoned but in a strange way for pussy riot it may well be a major boost for their careers,when they are freed ……record book and film deals no doubt will be in the offering
Thank you Charlie. I guess in this day and age of multi-media, adverse publicity or infamy is a great career move not that what they did was reprehensible.
Well done John – very edgy.
Thank you Jane. : D
