La vie est belle
Original oil painting

This is a painting of a mother and daughter that I met in Nice in 2016 just days after the terrorist attack. The atmosphere was volatile and to me it seemed to come to a crescendo at meeting these two people. I particularly wanted to paint this due to all the contradictions, the mother and daughter begging against a back ground of expensive clothes shops with slogans such as “life is beautiful”.
