I made this painting for a project about Cluster Headache (for info….
I was contacted by Al.ce Cluster Europe… to create this piece of art for it to be exposed in their art gallery dedicated to such disease.
The coordinator of the forementioned association, Claudio Geraci, requested some paintings for him about the topic, where as the first painting was the burden, this is the pain.

As much as I love the message and the idea you are attempting to portray, I feel like the face is a little bit lost in the surrounding chaos; which I should note, represents the pain and anguish of cluster headaches brilliantly, through your use of aggressive brush strokes.

Firstly, I'd suggest trying a 50/50 mixture of brown and blue rather than pure black - this could give the piece a bit more of a bite and more depth. And you could maybe use a higher ratio of red to create a deep, dark, purple-ish tone.

Secondly; possibly starting on a washy ground, perhaps a mid tone of red like you have in the top right to suggest layers in both the piece and the degrees of pain for suffers of such mysterious disease.

Good job nonetheless! :D I'm an admirer of your work

I love your work, I could watch it all day - that s a fact. Now days you ave to search for an critiquable work like for 20 minutes, but when it comes to your art every piece is worth taking some time. So, yes this is wonderful, realy well done. The face itself reminds me of a picture of Bob Marley, kinda brilliant job done there. The hair nd all other details are fiting the project s concept. Just the technique itself deserves a high rating, but the end product tops everything. Realy, i wouldn t be suprised if ya read somethere that other artists have found inspiration coz of your artwork.

As I wrote, I've done my expression Scream | Pain of inner blackness based on this astonishing piece. It's considered like practice and honor, not robbing. Thank You
