Seeing this series called "Flamethrower", it made me think of either a vandal ready to tag a building or perhaps igniting a spray can of paint, both considered violent expressions. Is it art? It can be, yes!
I noticed the model squats in a sexy but hardcore way, her expression considering where to go with these cans of paint. You don't know if she smiles or smirks under the gas mask. It adds a bit of mystery to the thoughts running in her head.
One thing is for certain: the lack of sprayed colors and burn marks means she has yet to express herself. It adds anticipation to the viewer, perhaps we'd like to see her make something. This image tells a bold statement of an act yet to happen. The inspiration by Linkin Park is genius, keeping hip with a generation anxious to express themselves in many different ways.
