Brian Mouhlas Shanghai Facility Cuyahoga County Oil Painting Artist Cleveland
Shanghai Facility
Oil on canvas
28.5 x 36.4 in.

This painting has a secretive appeal to it. Footage of a news crew who secretly infiltrated a facility in Shanghai. A snapshot from video footage of a team who tried to maintain their image as potential buyers of the synthesized drug Mephedrone. A drug that reeks damage on users and can be understood visually by the black tar-like cylinders on the bottom right and the overflowing of un-naturally colored substance oozing out the tops of the cylinders.
