Mini Futur II, 20" x 24", oil on canvas
Loading real life preview
Mini Futur II, is the second attempt in painting the side view of a building influenced by the circus arena situated in the city of Dnipropetrovsk, also called Dnepr, by local inhabitants. Dnepr is located on the Dnieper River in East-Central Ukraine. Dnipropetrovsk has been the major center of the steel industry from the beginning of the 20th century until the present. It has also dominated in the machine-building and aero-spacebuilding industry since the 1950s.
Through researching about the city of Dpner and the circus arena, I felt inspired to create my own interpretation of the building, a spaceship influence, and making it part of new frontier.
