Gouache on paper
29.7 x 42cm (A3)

The work depicts an academic shrouded in a dark background. I want to bring out the humanity of an individual who believes in human culture despite the tendencies of the time we live in, which are to act against exploring the human condition and extol the pursuit of material possessions. I wanted the facial expressions on the subject to show something of the fear of living in such a materialistic environment and the personal humanity of holding onto ideals that contradict the purely self-serving materialistic culture.
