Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.


The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona

Davis Lisboa, "Galerie légitime #2", 2013, oil on canvas, 15,7 x 15,7 x 2 in

What/who inspired the work?
This painting was inspired by "Galerie légitime" by Robert Filliou (1962-1963). I also was inspired by a photograph of a top hat downloaded from the Internet.

What do you hope viewers will feel / think?
I hope the viewers understand the existing concept inside the "Section of the Paintings of Davis Museum". I started it in 2011 and it is still in process. This section is a collection of paintings sharig the same subject: the artists who have created their own museums and their respective works. These paintings may represent this subject both in a literally or suggestive way.

Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style?
I chose the oil on canvas because it is a language in which I can achieve a worthy result. And also because the oil is a durable medium. And finally, to paint a good way to reinvent existing portraits of these artists and their works.
