Musical Instrument Posture
This Painting was the continuation of a small series that I painted in 2019.
I wanted to paint weird and extraordinary-looking musical instruments, along with humanoid characters, merging them together where you can't tell which is which.
I wanted to capture a scene from the process of creating a musical piece where the musicians and the instruments are all merged together in unusual ways expressing their innermost and sincere emotions.
"This is the 2nd painting I ever painted in my life, and the subject matter happened to be, by chance, Nina Simone."
Nina Simone was known to be a wild and tempered lady, and somehow those aspects got reflected in the painting.
This painting was the result of an experiment I did, I wanted to paint while listening only to 70s Brazilian music, and this was the outcome.
It is a vibrant and lively painting that reflects the artist's state of mind conveys an electric and positive vibe, capturing the heart of those who feel through art.

"Basquiat was a delicate subject, I realized that I was attracted to his work for reasons I couldn't comprehend, it felt like I was drawn to his vibe rather than what was in the painting."
It felt like he was painting from a place that he was only able to express with painting, a state of being that can not be explained or analyzed.
