We'll Start a Jazz Band by alicexz We'll Start a Jazz Band by alicexz

PRINT AVAILABLE HERE
Limited edition of 60 (sold out)



"Can you keep a secret? I’m trying to organize a prison break. I’m looking for, like, an accomplice. We have to first get out of this bar. Then the hotel, then the city, and then the country. Are you in or you out?"
Lost in Translation (2003)

A portrait on display at my cinema-inspired solo show MOMENTS, which opened June 7th at NYC's Bottleneck Gallery.

Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation is a very beautiful and subtle film, another one of my all-time favorites! I first saw it when I was in high school and it totally went over my head, but I saw it again a few years later and blew my mind! Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson are just spectacular, it's my favorite performance by Scarlett. Digital painting from references, Adobe Photoshop + Cintiq 21UX tablet.

The framing is a bit awkward (Bill Murray's hands are little to close to the edge and Scarlett's is completely cropped), but the colors and textures you used are just lovely. Completely captures the mood and tone of Lost and Translation.
