BONO, Acrylic on canvas 68 x 80 2005
“He greatly helped the children in Africa.”–G
In an inferno of bodies, Egyptian figures, and red flowers, Bono appears blissfully smiling. The wild contortions of the naked Greek figures around him blaze in colors of orange and yellow, accentuated by the sky of flowers. This painting is a representation of Bono’s charity work. Bono traveled to africa and supplied water for the kids and the Pope awarded him for his philanthropic work. In the bottom right corner the Pope appears sitting down and playing with his grandchildren. The American flag layered behind the figures is a symbol of collaboration between America, Europe, and Africa. This painting depicts nations coming together for the greater good.
