Michelangelo Buonarroti David
Acrylic on Illustration Board
About the Artwork
This painting reinterprets the famous sculpture by Michelangelo Bonarroti, in which David’s gaze is concentrated in evaluating the throw to be made. This interpretation of the event thus places the accent on reason and the effectiveness of intelligence with respect to the brute force exerted by Goliath alone.
Every detail has a very specific function: the muscular body alludes to physical strength, while its concentrated expression symbolizes the strength of the intellect.
My painting wants to highlight the proud and concentrated gaze of the Hero.
