Acrylic on board

Description

This work is a cheeky painting about pop culture. Marketing‚ and the use of sexual imagery. I used a male in this painting‚ because I have used many female figures in the past‚ and now I wanted to use a male‚ but also because I wanted to portray our society. Where women today are not the only ones used as sex symbols staring at the camera lens or voyeur. Today men are very much the sex symbol and gay rights and same sex marital rights are all on the agenda. This is a painting in acrylic on a large board where I played around to find the perfect pose and angle; the male body posing seductively in a milkshake. A quirky comical image. I experimented with layers and techniques to get the splashed water effect. I also painted with red and blue tones because of the simplicity and because they have a great dynamic together‚ and black to highlight.
