I remade this image to get the video of its realization, I'm working with the Italian fashion designer Ilaria Nistri, who asked me the permission to use this painting as print for her new collection. Then, we decided to make this video to use it as advertising for us collaboration.
It's just a little different from the original.. I hope that you like also this version!

Even if this was drawn in 2011, it shows over flowing perspective which i love. The idea, the composition, it's perfect. It almost reminds me of the peer pressure in society and how to step out of it with all the struggle. I also watched the video on youtube, and I love your painting technique, it's one that is not appreciated enough! I look forward to seeing future compositions in your gallery, since I was so astonished by this one! Great work and let your muse continue to drive you through out your already beautiful artistic career!

This piece truly blows me away. You capture that feeling of being torn in two different directions (or at least that's how I interoperate it) in such an incredibly dramatic way. I love how he seems to be tearing himself into two separate people. Really nice way to visualize that feeling.

It's hard to put into words what it is about this piece that I find so enthralling. I think that what really captivates me the most is your expressive use of lines. They have so much energy and passion in them. You really create the feeling through them. Very nicely done. I love this piece.
