Painting: “Monkey”. Inspired by a #ChineseDrawing. 2017 – 30×40 cm – #oiloncanvas

I created this oil painting based on a poster that I had seen in a restaurant in China, on the loo! The motive left a longer lasting impression, but as I hadn’t taken a photo,  I had to paint from memory many months later. It doesn’t look too much like the original, it came out better actually. The face looks a bit like my brother’s ;-) The original was a color pencil sketch on a ragged piece of paper, with Chinese characters; which I replaced with Japanese characters. Anyone know what the text means?
