Clinton Anthony Cummings' Last Supper

The Last Supper painted on a wall, Port of Spain, Trinidad

The graffiti artist Clinton Anthony Cummings has completed to what appears to be a portrait of The Last Supper. The work is of Jesus of Nazareth with his twelve disciples before his betrayal and exicution. The biblical depiction has been painted many times by artists alike. The most famous and often copied is Leonardo da Vinci's fresco in Milan.

Cummings has painted
The Last Supper with a group of people who may represent a part of Trinidad and Tobago. The figurehead may be the street artist himself and the work is a premonition of a nation that feels betrayed and neglected. Whoever the Judases may be in this wall painting, what it says is that it is an inner reflection on the society today. Clinton Anthony Cummings has put his faith and sacrifice to show that his passion and concerns are a small attribute that he cares for unity and brotherhood.
