[painting of hip hop artist, Playboi Carti and butterfly]
I think this piece represents growth in a simple, yet subtle way. The butterfly is a common symbol for growth. In the reference photo, I felt that his hands holding the butterfly represented Carti holding his own destiny. I wanted to capture that in my recreation, even adding a slight glow in the middle of the painting above were his hands are positioned in an attempt to give a soft yet noticeable feel.
