Perseus and Medusa

Posted on Nov 15, 2015 by in Digital Painting, school project | 0 comments

One of the world’s most gripping tales of hero vs powerful beast, what would it look like to see the classic battle of Perseus and Medusa in the context of another culture?

As part of the course Painting Drama offered by the Oatley Academy (which I can’t recommend highly enough) focusing on the visual flow and composition of our images, I re-contextualized the famous Greek hero and petrifying Gorgon to the Indian culture and drew from the rich visuals, culture and artistry of the continent. Overall I’m very happy with the results, and hope you like it as well.

Feel free to drop me a line!
