Extra Terrestrial Elephant

Pride Before The Fall    2010
Acrylic paint on canvas (120cm x 110cm)

The soccer world cup was in full swing around
this time and everytime you turned on the
television African landscapes came on. I have
always been a fan of African art and wanted to
make a painting about soccer (wich to my humble
opinion is fuckin' impossible). So I made a
painting about identity and what it is to be human
instead. There are Fight Club, the Thing,
Near Dark, Gangster no 1 and White Heat
references. The whole thing is pretty downbeat
now that I look a it again. On a lighter note you
could say mankind is a strange beast, but I hope
it's worth looking at.
