Inspiration can come from nowhere… Personal Work

Inspiration can come from nowhere... Personal Work

So last night for some unknown reason I was feeling quite inspired. Really for an art blog, I should be referencing an artist as my inspiration but in truth it just came out of nowhere! I was looking at some of my work I had done when I was younger (16/17)  and decided that I wanted to play around in Photoshop with the photos to see what I could come up with now. As regular Photoshoppers would know using the software can sometimes be quite restrained and hard to portray and sort of expressionism. However, I thought to myself “I’m going to go a bit crazy with this and see what happens”…

This was the result and i’m pretty happy with it. It looks like a mixture of some of Francis Bacon’s work and the album cover of the Sex Pistols “God Save the Queen”. Also, I think it has a bit of a cubist element to it. This is probably because my girlfriend never stops talking about Pablo Picasso as she specialises in studying him at University and it has now become engrained into the right side of my brain!

Anyway, I just wanted to share this with everyone. What do you think? Could it be any better? As an artist I know work can always get better and its never quite finished however I just thought this piece looked quite interesting and could be inspirational to some people.
