I have always admired the grand masters. Although I have no intention to do reproductions of famous masterpieces, I thought I might enjoy to do some interpretations of famous paintings, my style. For one, I thought to add a bit of diversity, so Asian Mona Lisa and African Girl with a Pear Earring were born. I wanted to make them recognizable, but not copies. Maybe I’ll start to depart even more from the original in future interpretations, who knows?
