This is a complete painting from a sketch I did over a year ago, it has been waiting for me to finalize it. This show also was a good push to create a series of work that links the themes, colors and style. I enjoyed looking up a mix of esoteric and old astrology illustrations that I added in between the clouds.
I sneaked in a bit of Salvador Dali influence in the hanging pyramids, as more for me a show of respect and appreciation to his work, that has been a great influence since I can remember

This is The Cosmic Egg, the First Born,called Eros (‘Love’), the Universal Being, the creator of all individual expressions of life Eros shines as a great Light—the Light of the Universe.This is from another painting I did couple years ago (more links and story behind it on this previous post)

The main inspiration came from the next piece you will see below, music is a great inspiration while I do my work and I wanted to dedicate one piece to it. I loved adding the old decorative elements and as well as basically just painting an object on its own. It might be to small to notice, but it supposed to be a microphone in the middle top of the locker, with the sun shining behind it. And the trumpet and bass bellow also comes from the next piece. The last bit I added to this was the 'Sun' stripes coming behind the locker, as its been a focus of mine to paint thinking a lot on the source of 'Light' to find out how to shade and get depth in an image . I thought it fitted well and also it looked to plain floating in space on its own.

I'd like to dedicate this to all the children
I have some food in my bag for you
Not the edible food the food you eat no
Perhaps some food for thought
Since knowledge is infinite
It has infinitely fell on me so um..
.See I picks my friends like I pick my fruit
My Granny told me that when I was only a youth
I don't walk around trying to be what I'm not
I don't waste my time trying to get what ya got
I work at pleasin' me
Cause I can't please you and that's why I do what I do
My soul flies free like a willow tree
Doo wee doo wee doo wee
And if you don't want to be down with me, you don't want to pick from
My apple tree
And if you don't want to be down with me, you just don't want to be
