Looking for a fun and witty gift for your loved ones? Check out my "Male Tears" art apron, featuring my allegorical self-portrait. Not only is this apron a practical accessory for the kitchen, but it's also a unique and playful addition to any cooking experience.
The idea for this painting came from my own life; it is my allegorical self-portrait. The kitchen is the epicentre of my home. It’s a place where I spend most of my time. Whether it is caring for my small child, cooking, or doing other chores, everything happens in the kitchen. I also paint in the kitchen. Additionally, there is a hint of influence from Richard Hamilton, from his (1956) collage “Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing?” I tried to capture the satire of my “well” organised everyday life, the parodical stretch of the overwhelming illusion – always trying to be everything to everybody and nothing less.
