neo expressionist painting

21st Century Neo- Expressionism: an avant garde departure for Berlin. This piece was created from street experiences and references the beginning of global sociopolitical angst. With a stylistic nod towards Basquiat, Nicole Eisenman & Edvard Munch this painting can be viewed as an indictment against the global economic crisis. It calls for freedom of the individual with the symbolism of the inverted crowns and could be a beacon of social upheaval; however one can also say that within the context of the piece there's also fun.

Oil and acrylic on canvas.
