Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Ink on Paper.

This is "Monk." His face is drawn with black pens and the background is painted with acrylic paint. This is a 9" x 12" painting on Bristol paper ready to frame.

This is a portrait of the British photographer Ewan Waddell, which is part of the series "Gods and Saints." This portrait is influenced by the vibrant colors of the traditional Tibetan Monk attire as it clashes with contemporary street wear and culture. My thought behind this series was to portray men as earthly gods and saints. In a way, I intend to elevate the subjects of my art. I believe in the god inside all of us and that is what is reflected in this piece.
