How One Perceives One’s Self By Others

H.G

This come from a series (Wog Life) in development, it concerns identity and serves as representation of how one perceives one’s self through the eyes of others…Obviously inspired by the golly wog of yesteryear.

The painting on photograph began with a photo of Mr. H.G and then using the original colour scheme painted the pattern of G.Wog’s trousers. Then eventually deciding to go all the way, sorted out the jacket and tie. Continued with the signature big red lips and black as tar skin. From here, I’d probably look to give the skin a texture like that of a black hash. [Photo + Photoshop]

Irie, folks!
