This piece was made in celebration of Bad Bunny headlining Coachella in 2023, making him the first latino musician to do so in the festival! I used two bunnies dancing to represent his namesake and the floral used here is the flor de maga which is Puerto Rico’s national flower. I wanted to capture the melancholy vibe of Un Verano Sin Ti by making the background feel like a setting sun - the threshold between day and night. The material on his shirt was challenging to render, but it was a good exercise in abstracting detail to capture the essence of what I’m painting. This just means that I wasn’t aiming for photo-realism, but I wanted his shirt to feel woven like how it did in the reference image!
