This image was created after seeing the “конец” title at the end of one of Dziga Vertov films.
I have never sampled lobster – apparently they scream when they are cooked.
All of the characters I depict tend to feature one of the following: stockings, suspenders and high heels, bruised and bloody knees, tears or cigarettes. Why they emerge from my mind as so dysfunctional, I am yet to establish.
The music I feature at the end of my blog posts are sometimes simply tracks I listen to when I complete and image, and sometimes sounds that I associate with the finished piece.
This image originates from a mixture of influences. Me, Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus”, Lucha Libre and the tattoos of Mexican gangs.
This is a reference to Frida Kahlo’s painting: “Two Fridas”
