Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas and Plastic.

Currently I am working on a series Mug Shots. The idea of putting mug shots on the internet, for the whole world to see, intrigued me. I started painting those portraits on book covers, leftovers from a friend who thought it a brilliant idea to use it as canvas in times of crisis. This one is one of the first I painted on canvas. It's a convicted thug. He has tape in the background, nice yellow sticky tape. The series is still developing so it is hard to say what I want with it. One of the things I am concerned with is the US jail system. With painting these mug shots I am finding a way to relate myself with the subject.
