Finished this is less than a week for Taiwan’s Centennial International Painting competition. Luckily they extended the deadline and I was able to shoot off the entry today before packing (for an extended holiday in the states). Originally this painting had Jesus holding the Taiwan baby, being growled at by the local gods (whose turf Jesus – the white colonizing masculine authority – had breached). It works pretty well this way too.
In October they’ll pick a winner (grand prize is $1000usd or an ipad!)
This is kind of a boring painting for me – what do you think?
I did these when I was studying art history in Malta. I had to build a chicken wall/concrete portable wall, to practice fresco on. It’s a lot like painting in watercolor, actually. Both done from pictures of beautiful girls I knew there.
One of my early paintings – from a picture I took in Malta. (It’s a little too digital because I didn’t take a proper picture of it.) The contrast is great, it’s pretty much my own ‘impressionistic’ painting.
This is based on a classical painting I found in some art book… unfortunately I’m not sure who did the original. It came out pretty good and I use it as a measure of my potential – given the right picture to copy from and enough patience, I’m not half bad.
