The inspiration behind the painting is a photo of German actor Kevin Silvergieter, photographed by Nathalie Scholl addressing the phenomena "toxic Masculinity".
"Because make up doesn't know gender. Society does.
Because beauty has no boundaries. Society has.
Because masculinity doesn't define how much of a man you are. Society does.
Because it doesn't matter who you are and how you decide to look like." ©Kevin Silvergieter
