A Fun Multicoloured Painting!
I painted this new piece pretty quickly. I got really involved in its creation and I couldn't stop! One of the things that I loved about it so much was the fact that each recycle bin had to be covered in lots of visual textures - graffiti, stickers, writings, etc. The process of researching and replicating all of these little bits was very enjoyable and focused.
The references to pop culture are my favourite. I've included nintendo characters and imagery related to film (Ghostbusters logo). The ability to reproduce all of these icons, and have them make sense in such a visual mismatch like this painting, was a joy and a half :)
