The story behind Osama – The Biggest Arsehole On the Planet

Osama bin Laden is the biggest arsehole on the planet – or was. He has gone now, but his obscene use of religion to murder thousands of humans led me to paint a portrait of the leader of Al Qaeda.

I wanted there to be no doubt as to how I felt about the man, so I did two things. Firstly, and most obviously, I added the words – The biggest arsehole on the planet. Secondly, I didn’t take much care painting him. In fact, I spent more time on painting his jacket and the cushion than his rude looking mug.
