Post God save the Queen
While most of my peers often do graffiti and street art, for me, I take that sort of style and apply it to one of the least expected subjects. I take something so gritty, messy, raw, and loud and fuse it with something so refined, beautiful, delicate, and soft. I personally believe that combination creates something powerful, beautiful, and raw.

This is a current piece that I'm working on, heavily inspired by Marie Antoinette and her oblivious nature. While the quote 'God save the Queen' wasn't in any way, shape or form associated with Marie, and her dress/bust may not depict an actual historically correct French gown - my goal was to capture her elegant and often extravagant nature in a modern interpretation worthy enough for street art and recognized by today's youth, yet sophisticated enough to stand on its own.

Still, a work in progress, hope it suits your ridiculing tastes :)

That is beautiful! You are so talented! Did you do that with spray paint like regular grafitti?

I amazed. When I look at your painting I´m listening to Dancing Queen with ABBA. Yor painting God save the Queen fits perfectly to Dancing Queen. By the way I can´t stop being annoyed that Coppola didn´t include this song in her movie.
