The portrait is of author and poet, Charles Bukowski, an inspirational person in my life.
Someone of an extreme transgressive nature, contrary to the norm, Bukowski lived as an icon for those who had no representation.
The monochromatic gray scale coloured Bukowski's cold attitude portrayed within the quote and pose. The textured background is a of acrylic that was rolled on.
Materials used: Staedtler Mars Matic 700, Gray Prisma Colours, Acrylic
