Eh well, haven't had an original idea in ages, this is a ripoff of Andy Warhol's "Mao"

The image is a graffiti I found printed on the wall of an abandoned block of old flats in the city area.

rather cool looking - the graffiti, I've uploaded the original as a WS.

Welcome to TL Chia, and a very creative post indeed. I had a look at the WS, and like what you have done here - looks like the kind of poster my kids would put on their walls, or something that could go in one of those modern coffee shops. Well done.

HAHAHA...this is very COOL. Nice to see an "artisitc" side to your photography. Nice Andy Warhol homage as it works rather well here (subject is just perfect). Well...what can I say? Hope to see more of this sort. You've got a wild immagination!

Glad too that after peering into this site, you finally decided to register and show something different from you. Still s'pore daily life, always plenty of humor,it's got the "steely" trademark.

I like that nod to contemporary art, anyway she's looking better than Mao, don't you think?

Ok, Steely, a bit more difficult next time : you'll have to find S'pore version of Jean-Michel Basquiat... ;-)))

This is nice! I really like the colors and the "wink" to Andy Warhol. Good job!

Here I think it was better to make a collage with different graffiti.

Looks more like Yoko Ono than Mao! :)
Great graphic work! I like the rough touch of it. Well seen the graffiti and the opportunity for a Warhol-like work.

Hi Chia,

Nice work, I love pop-art!
Great collage..
