oil painting Description

Twin Clowns is an abstract portrayal of the artist’s life and how he felt about it. The painting expresses his emotions as well as engages with the viewer through the use of color. The most noticeable aspect about the art is the drama. The painter used curvy lines that show motion, which is further detailed by the fact that the main figure is floating in a solid color background. The curvy lines and floating depict of fluidity. Moreover, Twin Clowns expresses strong emotions, particularly sadness and rage. Notably, the painting illustrates tension in what seems to be opposing direction of movement by the twin clowns. A closer look at the figure shows a face at the top left and another in the bottom of the piece. Thus, it seems like the clowns are in constant opposition to one another. Moreover, the painting evokes sadness because the faces seem unhappy. The motion and emotion in the artwork give the artwork a dramatic feel.

Virtosu’s application of color is a strong indicator of the meaning and inspiration of the painting. The painter uses different shades of primary colors, namely red, yellow, and blue, but they are dull. All the colors are cool and the figure has several parts painted in black, which dampen the viewer’s mood. The abstract figure is also surrounded with a dull red. The color symbolizes rage or wrath. Finally, the piece also elucidates mixed feelings. Clowns often bring happiness or laughter. However, these emotions are lacking in this piece, as Virtosu's message is much deeper and philosophical. This view further appears in the fact that the right side of the red background shows gestural brush strokes, while the left part is smoother. Thus, Virtosu uses techniques that show strong emotions, particularly pensive and melancholy.

"I'm a tearless clown. If I were to get a tattoo, it would be the two masks, and they would be both smiling." - Andy Samberg.
