oil on canvas 🧚🏻♀️
just wanted to elaborate on the meaning of this painting — The last photo is what I painted which is a photo of my universities frosh and some leaders were covering an pro-life poster showing a whole fetus. This is something that makes many people uncomfortable and as leaders we were trained to make sure everybody was comfortable at all times (hence why it was being covered). My painting is inspired by the painted Guayasamin of Ecuador. He used to paint very political images and painted them with these wide eyes and intense colours (probably darker than mine but I love colour). I wanted my painting to be political. It’s practically a protest against the image that was being shown. I left the posters blank because I wanted anybody to mentally fill them with what they want to protest. Anyway, I hope you all like it, it took me probably 40 hours in total to do and I know it could use more.
