“Radioactive Rihanna, ain’t she though.”–G
Rihanna is a god. A constant factor of Giovanni’s ‘God Series’ is in each portrait the word ‘God’ appears at the top and is inverted at the bottom. Here in rihanna’s portrait the ‘O’ in ‘God’ appears at the top of Rihanna’s head like a halo. Humanity now has the power of gods, a nuclear arsenal that could destroy the world and remove all possibility of recovery. In the middle of these emblems Rihanna’s seductive indifference stands out, a vision of a god in the midst of weapons.
