The piece was inspired by the master Van Gogh's Skull with a Burning Cigarette.The painting is 98 inches by 72 inches.

Implications - One of the best ways a PSA or non-profit company can get a message about the dangers of a certain activity across is by investing in avant-garde advertising that shows the actual human loss of the behavior. By eschewing the newfound PSA movement of featuring humor in a humorless situation, the company stands a good chance of embedding fear in the minds of consumers.
