History re-painting

It´s my Appropriation art. Here are my thoughts on paintings that I find important. For example, Edouard Manet´s The Fifer is the basis for my Poster Boy series and my major belief for this painting is that it has more of Sharaku and less of Velazquez and therefore it carries pathway to modern art. Modern elements of this painting are something that I will be retelling again and again through the individualized variations of this painting.
