This is first pice of a collection called “streetmood2k17”. I’m using as reference for my paintings, some photos made by myself in New York and some photos selected among Instagram users with whom I’ve established a kind of relationship. The goal is to paint the people in the street from different places of the world. Different human races, different skin.
I would like to show the contrast of the “real” life in the streets told “virtually” by social networks. Two tracks that run in parallel, but overlap in people’s lives.
As usual I paint with the technic/style of what I call “sampled realism” (sampledrealism.org).
I used for this painting spray paint for background, acrylic for the buildings and oil for portrait.
