Justin Hampton Bound Justice Art Print Release

Presenting the art print version of Justin Hampton's 2017 Metallica poster. Lady Justice is an allegorical personification of the moral force in judicial systems. Her blindfold represents impartiality, the ideal that justice should be applied without regard to wealth, power, or other status. Often referred to as 'Blind Justice' Justin opted to alter her in this piece to 'Bound Justice' with her bound and gagged on the steps of the Supreme Court as a metaphor for the mistreatment of Lady Justice. The definition of injustice is: the absence of justice: violation of right or of the rights of another. This was never intended to be a kinky or sexual image in any way but a jarring visual statement representing crimes going unpunished, injustices inflicted upon marginalized people and laws not being upheld to the full extent or even enacted with malice by bending the interpretation of the law. Justin  finds this to be particularly relevant at this point in time in American history, especially over the last two years with the ongoing investigation of the obstruction of justice by our President, Russian interference in our elections, shutdown of the government, ban of transgender in the military, the rise of hate crimes and general decay of national moral compass.

Justin is donating a portion of the proceeds of this print to the American Civil Liberties Union(ACLU). Civil protections are needed now more than ever.

This image has been re-scanned from the the original painting at a much higher resolution and newly color corrected. You can see the actual texture of the canvas and paint itself. This is a much higher quality and vibrant reproduction of the image than the band poster.
