About the piece
Classic appearance and old world aristocratic charm, Capitalism eccentric face is just a renounced new name on an ancient lady’s face, which means business is as usual. There are 2 vulture images figured into her make up which make this imagery ridiculously funny and terribly sad at the same time. Canvas is well layered with under tone colors to create depth, using classic oil painting technique in order to add dimension and feel to a conventional graphic art flat print effect.
