From the artist:
“Being a long time fan of The Planet of the Apes, and anxious for the new prequel directed by Matt Reeves, I was heavily influenced by the arresting stare of the main character, Caesar… his deep foreboding gaze, those prying eyes of a leader struggling for a possible future for his species.
I wanted to capture the heat, the intensity and brilliance of the sun-giver and taker of all life, and portray Caesar as the center of this new dawn.
Creatively, I found a connection between the dramatic conflict of the storyline and the associated contemporary themes portrayed in early 20th Centurist Futurist paintings (ie. violence, motion, technology), and incoroprated them into my vector tribute titled “Coronation of Caesar”.
