Inspired by the simplicity of Banksy Girl with balloon 2002 an explosion of colourful Infinite depth precariously balanced for one moment of success reliant on luck and innocence. A Five year old traverses a set of monkey bars in a play park wearing a universe of galaxies on her dress and a bubbling face mask

One of my favourite portraits is also by one of my most revered inspirations, Sandro Botticelli a great of technical supremacy and exquisite detail. In Portrait of a Young Man 1483, one of my most favourite portraits in the London National Gallery. Botticelli’s triple vertical planes and manipulation of perspective with the upper middle and lower thirds of his face in this suspected self portrait, converges in an imperfectly intriguing yet classically handsome painting of youthful carelessness. It is mastery of perspective and a technique used frequently with absolute mastery by the great Leonardo Da Vinci. The multiple perspective planes of the girl with the golden universe dress follow the same golden ration manipulation to create a impactful Holden like visually pleasing convergence.
