This painting, a close relative of Winds of War Graffiti 1983 [aka Billboard], was shown at Roslyn Oxley9 in June 1983. Previously catalogued in Arkley Works as Untitled [Billboard variant?] (1983?), it was identified by the owner in a response to the Arkley Works website in Dec.2012, with the additional details shown here.

The figure to the left also appears at the right in Untitled [Schizo study] (1982) [W/P] and Winds of War Graffiti 1983 [aka Billboard]. The large head at the right is related to a similar motif in Nude dreaming of spiders 1982 [W/P].
