This painting is based on the Vietnam war slang dictionary term Grunt. Grunt was a name for a US infantry soldier, especially, but not necessarily a Marine. The pattern is based on patterns of wall paper and fashion materials created in the 1960’s and 70’s. This painting is finished with a thick coat of clear resin and is finished with mirror edging.
