This piece was inspired by the ancient tale of "Icarus", the boy who flew too close to the sun with wings made of wax. It was this very act of straying too far that was his downfall.
"Iticus" explores the dangers of having too much ambition, allowing it to consume and darken one's world. The dark, warm colors, the intense oranges and deep reds in this art piece reflect passion. Too much of which can lead to the end of one's story.
