Simple Four letter words taken from poetry written by Heroes on the front line with contrasting perceived Villains have been superimposed onto a Playable 'Jenga' Sculpture. The Four Letter Words have been wrapped around the blocks to hide and reveal to engage the viewer to decipher the code and solve the puzzle. The Sculpture is made up of a standard four, eight or twelve unit square block sprayed painted with Primary Colours of either Yellow, Red or Blue superimposed with hand-painted text. The varies size blocks have been Balanced with Gravity (Gravity is a Force) on one another from a natural equilibrium between Good (Heroes) and Evil (Villains).

UK-based Vincent Artist is a Conceptual Artist and Post Pop Artist is best known for his abstract use of repetitive vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines superimposed with four-letter words forming a playable word search “The idea or concept [Conceptual Art] is the most important aspect of the work, and I use any medium [painting, digital, printmaking or sculpture] to convey the idea to the piece of Fine Art” The Artist is interested in the Duplicity of Life, the interaction between opposites, yin & yang, war & peace, love & hate, rich & poor, life & death. The Artist juxtaposes these contrasts with the innocent of Toys and Games used in our youth. Vincent Artist's most recent body of work includes "Flags of the World" which communicates with viewers through linguistics, semiotics, and cryptography. The series includes English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, and American Flags superimposed with four-letter words of their respective language forming a playable word search from A to Z. His previous works include, "Retro Celebrity Stars", which is a homage to celebrities of our past from the films of the Hollywood Golden Era, to the present day. Every one of these individuals helped create the world we live in today, and though we know of their names, their actual image might be fading from our memory. "Disasters of War", which is a homage to Heroes and Villains from World War I & II, by the use of humorous and tongue-in-cheek language to explore the more serious issues of the past to the present day. Heroes and Villains are portrayed in life, death, and immortality by the use of toys of our innocent youth. The toys are used as a satirical look at the “Disasters of Wars” revealing shock and truths of war and violence in a playful way.
