I love the playful textures and layers of bright color in this painting.

It is a relatable photograph with a Warhol-like coloring. Nothing extrodinary, but unique.

Wondering what is the reason behind the more saturated colors in the lower image. Direction of vision is there. Otherwise painting is not particularly compelling.

This painting sends an ideological message that says this is how people should look and behave. It beholds the idea that in order to be happy, you have to be young, white, and playing at the beach (probably in CA. somewhere). I am aware that the artist is from Argentina which I'm sure he is making a statement about the power of an images influence and how easily people are bought into an images ideals--we (people) are easily manipulated by art, propaganda, and advertisements. So much so, that we are willing to pay a monetary price in order to acquire materialistic objects. I enjoyed this painting because it is vibrant and happy even though I am aware that it sends a false message.
