When I’m in the depechist mode my mind often takes me to my early, childhood interest in Greek Mythology. The other returning memory is of Picasso’s recurring theme of bullfighting and, in particular, of the image of the bull.
I have made a number versions of the same story of Europa being raped or seduced or kidnapped by Zeus disguised as a bull.

If you click on the link to my biography it will take you to the Depechism Manifesto. You can also take a look at other Depechist pieces.
