My most recent paintings are a series of colorful photomontages. I started painting "1990's" by sketching a group of iconic faces in charcoal. I gathered reference photos from online sources to accurately render the realistic forms. I choose to use an analogous color palette to depict a joyous feeling throughout the painting. For a more aesthetic finish i splashed colors of paint over the faces. Characters from cartoon network's dragonball z and futurama are seen in the foreground of the painting along with other iconic faces. My painting "Trump Protesters" was inspired by jerome "wrath of medusa". Before i applied the oil paint to the canvas i sketch out two equilateral triangles in charcoal to place the figures on the canvas. I sticked to the same story as jerome wrath of medusa to illustrate the trump protesters lost at sea. In the background is the presidential helicopter evading the tragic moment. My final painting in this series is called the "mystical dance". This painting is inspired by "edgar degas" the dance foyer at the opera. I used the same architectural structure of the piece and an analogous color scheme. I replace the figures with african dancers. The dancers are illustrated in a crescent displaying their figurative stance. Each dancer is wearing a unique mask that displays their social rank in the room. The figure that wears the white mask holds the highest rank.
