Bedouin in LV by Eric إسماعيل‎ Parnes

Bedouin in LV by Eric إسماعيل‎ Parnes
The Bedouin Arab was originally painted by John Singer Sargent c. 1891. 
Here Parnes in a Post- Modern twist has repainted this image in acrylic
with Louis Vuitton inspired print.
Eric describes this new series:
"Living in the West, with family roots in Iran, as a conceptual artist
I examine and explore the "Orient".Reaching beyond the borders
of the United States and Iran, developing themes that reflect the modern,
mystic and visceral reality of a "Neo- Orientalist"

Still Life is honored once again to feature new works by this fascinating artist.
More of his art and information can be found on Eric's website:
