Paintings

 

The protagonists I choose to portray have been on survival mode in some stage of their life or storyline.

The threat is usually inflicted by the outer world.

the paintings show a pivotal moment of the subjects life, either vulnerable or defiant.

Inspirations are warriors, rebels, anarchists, artists, Musicians and fictional characters.
