Dolce and Gabbana Opening

Dolce and Gabbana Opening

Piece description from the artist

This collage was probably the most difficult one in my China collection- it took me an entire summer to complete. On this occasion I appointed Toulouse-Lautrec, the great nightlife painter, to oversee my creative process. This piece insisted that I find precise variations of dark colors to hint at a figure's form, such as the blue stripes on the young man's shirt. Sometimes a single shade required searches through twenty or more magazines. Equally challenging was creating flesh tones that caught the right evening light without looking rancid. That said, this scene is a window to one of my favorite memories of Shanghai. A few coworkers and I ended up getting into a Dolce and Gabbana opening, where we tipped back champagne and danced the night away.
