"cyclopulus" is meant to confront and challenge expectations of the human form. This unique portrait includes one huge focal point eye, two noses, and two mouths. It is comprised of colorful shapes and patterns in bright greens, oranges, pinks, reds, blues, aquas, yellows, and purples. It is tamed with grays and neutrals. Bold pattern continues into the background giving the whole scene vibrant energy. Confident semi-gloss black lines define the facial features and harness the composition.
This original painting on canvas is sure to demand attention. It is thoroughly fun and contemporary.
The image is painted in acrylic with tight detail and care on a quality gallery wrapped canvas with 1 1/2" stretcher bars. The patterns continue over the thick edges of the painting so there is no need for framing. The painting includes a hang-wire and is ready to hang.
