A signed, limited edition boxed canvas by contemporary artist Keith Maiden, entitled Wake Up And Smell The Corruption.
Keith Maiden's Autumn 2015 Collection draws inspiration from the transcript of a 1965 broadcast speech by Paul Harvey, entitled 'If I Were The Devil'.
Wake Up And Smell The Corruption is inspired by a paragraph within the If I Were The Devil speech; "If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions - I'd just let them run wild." With this piece, he questions the declining moral values of today's self-centred youth, and questions what could be to blame.
