Fighting with Mr.T

Fighting with Mr.T (2022) – Oil painting on canvas – 122cm x 92cm

Part of a series of paintings called ‘Fighting with my heroes’ explores male insecurity and childhood role models. In this piece, I am dominating 80s TV icon, Mr.T, whom I was a big fan of as a child.

As a shy and insecure child, I often felt inferior so the dominance on my part is from the human psyche that wants to be a ‘tough guy’ to prove that they are worthy.
