Riders Of The Apocalypse

Yuri Andropov, Michael Heseltine, Margaret Thatcher, and a sari-wrapped Ronald Regan are the four riders of the nuclear apocalypse, riding on rockets fueled by rubles, pounds, and dollars, facing off for the fate of the planet against the dove and CND/anti-nuclear symbol as harbingers of peace.

Painted in 1983 by Brian Barnes in Sanford Walk, London. (1000 Londoners | London Mural Preservation Society) Barnes died in December of 2021 (Guardian). Previously by Barnes: Battersea In Perspective
