"Toxic Masculinity"




80 W x 80 H x 1.5 D cm


Acrylic, watercolor, fineline ink pen and gold leaf on canvas


wooden floating frame


The inspiration behind the painting is "toxic masculinity" and addressing one of the issues relating to this phenomena. Men who do not follow the cultural or society norms and as the result getting bullied and experiencing aggression and forced social isolation. The shapes behind the male figure dancing with a very long red skirt are inspired by Persian carpet patterns. This is a reflection my very own experience as a 4 years old kid who danced once for some minutes with his cousin's red skirt on his birthday party...
