This is a recent painting from my “app” series and was initially inspired by a dream I had not too long ago about feeling quite comfortable in a pool with sharks. In this investigation, I explore the concept of “sharkness” in terms of not only literal sharks, considered one of the ultimate and perfectly designed predators, but also the idea of the business-person (“sharking” it up in the corporate world), the “wannabe”, tough-guy clown (payaso), and, of course, the tech-giants that are, at the moment, vying to stay on top (fighting to keep their “sharkhood”).
