Todd Monaghan, 2002, Enamel, oil pastel on canvas.
What for a Hero was painted by Monaghan in 2002 after the events of 911. The piece is an abstraction of his more spiritual surrealistic pieces that celebrates what it is to be a hero. Looking in to the piece you will see various faces of angels and knights floating about and interacting with one another. This is a central them in most of Monaghan's work.
