Group art show - 35 works

My statement for the show
On September 17, 2008, I will become an American citizen; and one of the most important aspects of this citizenship for me is the right to vote. I am especially excited to vote for someone brilliant, different, who makes me hope that a different political view is possible. Above and beyond becoming an American, I feel like being a citizen of the world. I believe Obama can unite people from different horizons and countries to envision, at last, holistic solutions for the problems the Earth is facing right now.

I worked both portraits I present in this show the way I usually work my paintings: starting with a photo, I simplify the image to keep only the essential. Then I proceed with layers of colors.
