This work has been inspired by the swimming events at the Olympics Games, in particular that of the Butterfly Final, and that of the Team USA and Team GB.
In this version, I have made a Bolder version with Post Pop Art colours by using Primary Colours of Blue, Red, Yellow for the Swimming Lanes with their respective corresponding Complimentary colours of Green, Yellow, Purple for the Text, to bring Bold or Pop Art colours, instead of previous version of Muted Colours with hidden Text. Similarly, I have made the Butterflies Bold or Heavy to highlight them more instead of the transparency Muted colours in the previous version.
This has been inspired by the swimming events at the Olympics & Paralympic Games. Lanes #1 to 4 incl. depict Olympic Game winners, while Lanes #5-8 depict Paralympic Game winners. In particular that of the Butterfly swimmers, and other swimming and water events.
Olympic Gold medal winners, Michael Phelps (in the work indicated by initials MP, on upper lane #1). Katie Ledecky (indicated by initials KL, upper lane #2). Team GB Gold medal winners, Adam Peaty (indicated by AP, bottom lane #1), next Helen Glover (indicated by initials HG, in next bottom lane #2).

Within my work I am interested in hidden massages, and within this work there’s a hidden message in Binary Code. From the Top far Left lane, the Butterflies Spells the Letter “T” vertically downwards, 01010100, with the 8 Lanes Spell words “TEAM USA!” with Stars & Stripes Butterflies, similarly the lower half lanes Spells words “TEAMGBGB” (Inverted) indicated by Union Jack Butterflies. The image is reversible, chose which Team you prefer, to be Displayed Up!
