In The Death Car We Arrive

There is a great song made by Iggy Pop/Bregovic called In The Death Car We Are Alive. And as you know, all great things are the source of inspiration for other great things...
This painting first appeared as a poster for a party. After the party the poster went missing. The loss proved the quality of the image.

When I was done with crying, I sat down and painted a new one. As the matter of fact, I like it better than the original, especially because of an almost square format. Notice, that the car is not pure ivory black but dark purple. Laid on top of lemon yellow it creates a particularly strong impact.
