Art Description

Painting: Oil, Ink on Cardboard, Paper.

The 3 portraits on that work, were all inspired by the MMA fighter Nate Diaz' face.
It is also a kind of endorsement of the tradition of the "picture in the picture" which goes all along history of art.
Mixing technics, esp. paintings and engraving, on a rough surface, is also an influence from urban art.
At last, if my body of work remains fighters, considered as contemporary heroes in the western civilization, I am now picturing them in another context of rest and contemplation.
That still might be an influence of meditating.
