This painting started with an idea to create something totally different and was called “The mountain” as a reference to King Kong. Had this idea to have a beast with flying cars around it that try to attack the beast. But I changed the beast into a butterfly, a symbol of freedom.
Some parts of the cars remain on the final painting but beside that I started to think about New York were King Kong is settled, so I changed the Empire State Building with the beast butterfly to a huge apple instead and so this story around a “Big Apple” started. It displays my feeling of a city that’s always “open”, very dynamic and free in color just like I am.
