Ready to Hang

I just start with no idea of what I want to do. I keep adding things until it is right or I have screwed it up so much, I have to scrap the whole thing.
Leon Trotsky was one of the fathers of the Russian Revolution and was indeed a very complex man. From the Bolshevik revolution to being assassinated by Stalins people at his exile home in Mexico.
This painting tries to catch that complexity.

Hey everyone. My name is Alex Hodges. I am a born and raised Kansas City artist. I graduated with a degree in history from the University of Kansas, focusing on military history and cultural histories of developing nations. I began traveling at a young age with my family, until I got a wild hair up my ass, got the itch and I ventured out on my own. I have since lived in Tanzania, South Africa, France, Romania, Belgium, Argentina and Ghana and explored and experienced a nice chunk of the world and the wonderful cultures and people that go along with it. Most of my work abroad has been for nonprofits, some for international media, and some too crazy to discuss on the Internet. Currently I am in law school focusing a lot on international law. My passion for culture, people, history, and the developing world is reflected in many of my pieces. Feel free to contact me with questions, and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram to see what cool shit I’m doing today.
