This is a very recent series of painting i've started.
It's titled Aunt's Pageant. The idea came to me after seeing a weirdly dressed neighbour of my uncle dance her heart out without paying attention to anyone at my uncle's birthday party. It was so beautiful to see. I then decided to create a series of 12 weirdly dressed but cool aunts doing a Pageant and giving each a funny story. I want people to smile like i smiled looking at that woman dancing unbothered by anyone staring.
This one for example is Aunt Pertina.
She is very quirky and has her pet lizard, Alice, pronounced like the italian spelling Ali-ce(ché). She brought a fake ear doll to come across as a good listener and long pearls inherited from her great great australian grandmother. She covered her hair because her hairdresser messed with her hair too much and she had to wear ripe bananas earrings to take the attention from it. She got her dress from Asos, where her boyfriend works as a graphic designer.
