Painting of Abandoned Tunnel at Teban (2010 - 2011)

Working on this painting is a humbling experience. I am not the "inspired artist" or "master painter" I imagined myself to be after all.

The photograph looks better than the actual work.

The painting is done using acrylics on Moleskine notebook paper. The actual work is 25.5 by 19.5 cm, slightly smaller than A4. There is a certain Van-Gogh-ish awkwardness and clumsiness to it.

I have chosen the graffiti-filled wall as the subject because graffiti is all about youth and rebellion. I want my art to be about youth and rebellion.
