Linemen

“Linemen” are a series of acrylic paintings on canvas inspired by Instagram influencers.  The loopy-lined contour figures of young male posers represent the swag, attitude, and stance of these would-be influencers. Seen here, they become an artistic expression of social media’s obsession with self.
