Challenge

In my office space an odd former window looked like an empty sad frame.

Solution

I decided to paint Yuri Gagarin's portrait in it. With horizontal lines only, like you see in the old footage from his space orbit. And I began with his perfect teeth.

Result

My wall looked a lot better and my wall art skills won me an invitation to exhibit at Zona Tortona design week, Milan, Italy
