KOLOSS


SOLD



This painting was inspired by a fight I witnessed
on the street in Berlin.
An angry guy (on crutches) grabbed somebody into his face.
The contrast of proportions between the two
turn the scene into the grotesque.

To add more weight and movement I lifted the
legs of the Koloss in the preparation drawing
(mixed media on mezz. 5 X 4 feet)

The pen and ink drawing I did a few years ago.

Oh Florian! I didn't know you had a blog!!!! Your 'koloss' pieces are amazing... I couldn't go to Ottawa at your Faces and Figures exhibition, but i'm glad I can see those!

Cheers!
