Artist's description:

The ubiquitous Elvis painting!
This painting tells the story of an Elvis Presley impersonator. He stands alone in a vacated room, caught in the last throws of his song. Both his expression and the limply hanging microphone suggest a vain attempt at a seductive pose and also his hopeless submission. The background, akin to a carelessly assembled Klimt painting, hint at disorder and confusion not only in the setting itself but in the man’s state of mind. The chairs, with their distorted legs, appear to be the only ones left dancing to his music.
The narrative as a whole touches upon the strange nature of idol worship. The seemingly commonplace need to live one’s life through another.
