The inspiration for the painting was taken from the song by Grandmaster Flash - The Message. "It's like a jungle sometimes It makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under"
The strong text and rare sound of this masterpiece from 1982 has had a deeply impact on me. Now I felt ready to pull this figure out of this tough jungle called LIFE . To me, this figure represents courage and determination.
The work on this painting was very powerful experience.The roughness and the texturalism are very noticeable when you approach the canvas.This gives the feeling of jungle thickness.
