Unus Mundus

Somebody told me the other day that the average painter applies 6 to 7 layers before a painting is finished. I just applied the 75th layer to ‘Unus Mundus’ (One World) and still it’s far from ready. Layers, in my case, are photographs, drawings, textures, digital in-paintings, etc.

Guess I have another 30 to 40 layers to go. Plus some patching here and there.

The imaginary will be printed and framed in the size 180x120cm for a permanent exhibition (until sold) in one of the better art galleries in the Western Cape, South Africa. And there will be only one print available for their clients appreciate (and pay for, I hope 😉 ) exclusivity.

How does my layering work? In the past I already made a youtube with a very simplified example. See: The Meta Selfie 

Imaginary Street Art 10

Some name it murals most others say it’s graffiti and there are also people who call it street art.

Paintings are perishable and so are wall paintings, graffiti, murals etc. I’m not a painter but I can photoshop a little bit hence my Imaginary Street Art (or is it ‘Imaginary Murals’ etc.?).

I don’t have any illusions; even my imagination is perishable.

This is the last of the imaginaries out of a serie of 10.
