Washington, D.C.

Robot Ninja

In Robot Ninja, Jonathan Monaghan deftly merges the hyper-masculine archetypes of popular video game characters with symbols of institutional power and wealth. Through a complex visual tapestry that features his signature aesthetic motifs, such as rainbows, global corporate logos, crowns, and ornate architectural flourishes, Monaghan forges a surreal and thought-provoking commentary on the collision of authority, war, and the superhero mythos. Using 3D animation software, the eponymous robotic figure embodies a fusion of past mythology and contemporary gaming culture, resulting in a work that is both haunting and humorous.
