The first major monographic publication by Abdul Vas, For Those About to Power, surveys most of the work that the artist has created under the spell of his enduring and passionate dedication to AC/DC, the Australian rock group which became one of the most influential hard rock sounds of the 1970s. The paintings, drawings, collages, and murals that Vas has produced over a decade are the result of his submersion into a subculture whose nonlinear, hallucinatory aesthetic seems an attempt to mimic AC/DC's entirely subjective and frenzied universe of contemporary mythology characterised by rebellion, pleasure, and power. Although many characters populate this universe, Navistar International trucks are at the centre of Vas's impressive, abrasive masterpiece of exuberant imagination and dizzying acceleration, where the interaction of subject and object hovers between seduction and power, technology and desire, to deliver an extraordinary example of devotion. Texts by Abdul Vas and Octavio Zaya.
