prince-frontal

Prince – ‘Mohawk’ – 1.3 metres width x 1.6 metres height x 9cm depth. Imported Italian ‘Maimeri’ acrylic paint on 340 gsm canvas.

This is a one of a kind portrait of Prince, the American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actor. The photo that I painted was taken by the brilliant Herb Ritts. In this portrait, it was important to me to try catch the on stage glamour that he is known for, by using purples,  gold and silver to bring out his sparkle. Building up the edges of the canvas proved to be extremely difficult, but the end product made it worth it. I think I captured his mohican perfectly.
