Barrow Man

Oil on Canvas 80cmx100cm


I feel a bit like Diego Rivera, honouring the worker, in my painting of the pineapple barrow from Hesta’s photo taken in Bangamoyo.

The sculptured muscles of his back are made for Michelangelo, while the physical work of pulling a barrow load of fruit, in the heat of the day, while we drink beer on a cool terrace would stir a socialists heart.

The angle of the composition, as well as its unusual perspective are what appealed to me.
