What motivated me to do this interesting painting was the local gallery that supports us GIGS Studio Artists (or maybe we support them) came up with a ‘nude’ themed group exhibition. I thought this would be a great chance to do something a little different, alternative and queer. This man is no one in particular. I got references from some Life Drawing Reference books, so he’s a mixture of different people. I designed his tattoo, hair and even his corset which I used my own corset as a reference. He is nameless, and his gender is variable depending on the viewer. But one thing is sure; he is happy with himself just the way he is.
This painting was entered into an exhibition called “Nude” which was on 19th July – 11th August 2013 held at Gigs Art Gallery, Lincoln Causeway, Wodonga. I also submitted four other paintings to this exhibition, check out one similiar which won the People Choice Award for the exhibition. pestilentialcreature.deviantar…
