Ready to Hang
I painted this on a huge empty beach at the very tip of North Cyprus, an island in the Mediterranean. I was travelling there to paint a mural in a marketplace on the south side of the capital city, and I showed up early to tool around and see new places. This is one of those new places. I drove here with an Egyptian I had met the day before. He said it was his favorite beach and it took us 3 hours to get there. The sun set and we continued driving to the very tip and saw some cows.
My name is SOLEI I am a 23 year old artist living in Somerville (Villeside), Boston Massachusetts. I graduated from Tufts University with a major in Sociology and a minor in Studio Art. I work in a coffee shop, paint murals for local businesses, play music in a psychedelic soul band, and create artwork manically in all of my spare time. I grew up in a small town in Maine. Because of that I have enormous appreciation for small towns but also nature. My childhood home is located on 63 acres of woods and it is in the woods that I feel most at home.
