Found this on jalopnik , http://jalopnik.com/this-is...ever-seen-1524679294




A man walking back to his car, calmly and resolutely facing a giant crab before him, sowing destructing and brandishing a Pontiac Fiero in its terrifying claw.


This is Fatigue 2, the work of Californian painter John Brosio. I asked him about the significance of the piece, the giant crab, and why he chose a Pontiac Fiero to face ultimate destruction.


It was a sequel to another piece, both of which have to do with being totally exasperated. I was just spent with the demands of others and those two images just sort of "happened." But the Pontiac was a toy! I had it here for a long time and thought it was just perfect. Partly had to do with the color being up there at the top of the painting but it just helped everything flow. As far as the monster, some have found a nostalgia in there for 50's science fiction but what was foremost on my mind was the notion of insurmountable obstacle

Hooters did a crab legs promo here years ago and had a giant blow up one that covered the whole building. During one nite, some school kids stole it and they found it at the school football stadium.

I'm assuming the smoke in the background is from another Fiero. They catch fire you know!

I would be willing to bet cash money that this painting is an actual photograph of the cars, parking lot, man, etc,

then, using computer wizardry, the author put a filter on the picture to give it that look, and then either drew or photochopped the crab and Fiero into the background.

Just my observation.
