This image explores the male form through oil pastels, wax crayon and felt pen. The strong use of colour was inspired by Fauvist approaches, exaggerating the colours and emphasising the flattening of space, choosing a pose akin to the Egyptian form (sideways).
This was during a time I drew a lot from my body, observing and recording the various ways one can see oneself and trying to imagine how others perceive the human body looking at the ways other cultures and artists saw themselves through their art.
