2D Peoplescapes

My oil on canvas "Peoplescapes" are inspired by my fascination with people everywhere today facing global issues, and satisfying my discipline for drawing figures, color and composition. I create a visual narrative by weaving together personalities, places and current events. With a skewed photojournalist’s style, I try to capture an important historical period. Each painting, while filled with considerable detail, unfolds uniquely, without plans or sketches. The paintings evolve as I follow my universal language. May it never stop.
