Todd Monaghan and Gregory Ilich, 2008, 95"/45.5"/.2", water color, acrylic, oil pastel and egg shells on canvas.
King - Peaceful Warrior, was created as a collaboration between Monaghan and his mentor, artist Gregoy Ilich in 2008. It is a large, unframed tapestry that is made from layered canvas and eggshells, pivotal elements in most of Monaghan's work. This piece is one of the larger "blue series" pieces and the only one that is a tapestry. If you look into the piece you can see the face of the warrior at the center of the painting.
