Description The original has sold, but prints are available here. You can find my available originals, learn about my artistic process, and more, at my website: rudypavlina.comThank you for looking. Please tell your friends about me!This piece makes me think about creativity, and those who stifle it. On a different level, it makes me think about the consequences of poor craftsmanship. Is this relic getting what he deserves? Should autoanimation even be illegal? Lots of other symbolism/perspectives in this painting.

I have no formal training as an artist. I admire the works of Dali, Max Ernst, Dorothea Tanning, Giorgio De Chirico, and Rene Magritte, among others. Usually, I paint it first; then think about what it all means to me. I think my current fascination with creation and re-birth is somehow connected to an increasing awareness of my own mortality. African masks interest me, and their beautiful/grotesque features often appear in my paintings. My work is usually humorous, sometimes sad, and sometimes both. Thank you for your interest.
