With this piece I sought to encapsulate the timeless allure of a pivotal scene from "The Godfather I," a cinematic masterpiece renowned for its captivating atmosphere and profound storytelling. Drawing inspiration from this specific scene with the iconic setting and the weight of the promise that was exchanged by Don Corleone, I embarked on a journey to reinterpret this classic moment through a contemporary lens on my canvas. Infusing the scene with a modern aesthetic, I aimed to capture not only the tangible elements of the setting but also the intangible essence that lingers in the air—the tension, the intrigue, and the unspoken agreements that shape the course of the narrative. Through a fusion of bold strokes and subtle nuances, I endeavored to convey the depth of emotion and the complexity of human relationships that define this cinematic gem. As viewers engage with my artwork, I invite them to immerse themselves in the world of "The Godfather," where loyalty and betrayal, honor and corruption, converge in a timeless saga of power and family. Let my interpretation serve as a tribute to the enduring legacy of this cinematic classic.

Born April 17th, 1981, Marc van Rooijen is a self-taught contemporary artist based in Utrecht, The Netherlands. He holds no Bachelor of Arts or other artist titles, but caries a Dutch National Mixed Martial Arts Championship instead. After serious injuries sustained throughout his fighting career, Marc exchanged his fighting gloves for canvas, oil paint, brushes and pallet knives. At first, he painted realistically but Marc translated his inspiration and passion for sports into his work. This made his work change towards a more dynamic and semi-abstract style. People play a central role in his art. The person’s character in his work is recognizable but an abstract complexity is added to it. Besides paintings Marc also makes colorful digital portraits. By dividing faces in color blocks an extra dimension is added to a person’s identity. Recently he started experimenting to paint portraits on caps. Since 2019 a selection of Marc’s work is represented by NYA Gallery. Marc is honored that sports legends like Mike Tyson and Valentino Rossi own his art work. Football star Ronaldinho shared one of Marc’s artworks on his social media channels. He also did commission works for Dutch National Football stars Memphis Depay, Denzel Dumfries, Riechedly Bazoer and Jairo Riedewald.
