Queen of Pop – Golden Stamp Miniature by Sannib

Sannib is a British contemporary artist of Syrian-Lebanese descent who is currently living in London. Sannib started painting at the age of 10 with no prior lesson nor technique. From 1997 to 1998, he took his first figurative and abstract painting lessons with Syrian painter Fared Jorgeuos.

Sannib participated in his first art exhibition in 1994 in Kuwait and later with the Syrian Artist Group Exhibition in Homs, Syria in 1998. From 2001 to 2002, Sannib lived in London, U.K. where he took additional painting lessons and improved his technique and style.

In 2006, he experimented with abstract themes and acrylic painting under the guidance of Mard Issa, a Norwegian classical painter and author who inspired him. Sannib’s work focus on abstract and contemporary themes.

Sannib has participated in many art exhibitions in different countries, including Kuwait, Syria and England.

The Joker is a character portrayed by Heath Ledger and the main antagonist in Christopher Nolan’s 2008 superhero film The Dark Knight. Based on the DC Comics supervillain of the same name, he is depicted as a psychopathic criminal mastermind with a warped, sadistic sense of humour who defines himself by his conflict with the vigilante Batman. In the film, the Joker tests how far Batman will go to save Gotham City from descending into chaos by targeting the Caped Crusader’s allies, including police lieutenant James Gordon and district attorney Harvey Dent.

Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker as an avatar of anarchy and chaos was specifically influenced by the graphic novels Batman: The Killing Joke and Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth. He wears the character’s traditional purple and green colour palette, while his disfigured clown-like appearance is the result of smeared makeup that covers facial scars of a Glasgow smile, rather than bleached white skin from falling into a tank of chemical waste like in the source material. Paintings by Francis Bacon, the character of Alex in Anthony Burgess’ novel A Clockwork Orange and Stanley Kubrick’s film adaptation of the same name, and various punk rock musicians served as additional inspirations for Ledger’s performance.
