No woman no cry by Chris Ofili in high deffiniton

Have a look at this! Google art projects enables you to look at famous paintings in high def the quality is amazing it as if you are standing right in front of it. You can also zoom right in and see how Ofili does it. It really is mesmerizing!
No Woman No Cry is a tribute to the London teenager Stephen Lawrence. The artist also intended the painting to be read in more general terms, as a universal portrayal of melancholy and grief. The artist painted a hidden message on the canvas in phosphorescent paint that can only be viewed in full in the dark. Ofili asked that this image was also recorded for the project, and so in the project you will see both views of the work.
