Angry Aussie told me that he is rarely angry in real life. Instead he loves his wife’s garden, photos of which flood his Facebook and Instagram, and every time I see him he talks at length about his teenage daughter’s delicious fried chicken recipe (which I have tasted, and it is delicious).

Portrait of Angry Aussie and Aidzee (2016), based on Francesco de Cossa’s “Saint Vincent Ferrer” (c. 1473)

In this digital portrait, Angry Aussie, a sociopolitical online ranter, replaces St. Vincent Ferrer, the patron saint of orphanages, attributed with a “tongue of flames”. In the clouds above, Aidzee is depicted as Christ bearing His wounds, and is flanked by Vladimir Putin, Barack Obama, muscle men and Tony Abbott-headed creatures. At this point, Aidzee’s heart has stopped 6 times and, according to his one man show “Code Grey” (2010), he considers himself immortal.
