Dido's Myth

Dido was the founder of Carthage. She was a strong and powerful queen. This painting portrays the version given by Virgilio in the Aeined. When Aeneas abandoned her by the will of Jupiter, Dido killed herself. It is a very controversial story, a tragedy. I portrayed the intensity of what took her away. She lost everything because of a distorted idea of love. Each painting I do comes along lyrics which I wrote specifically for the painting. I mix my own colours and choose colours based on the emotion that I want to convey and movements are done based on the intensity of the emotion that the painting portrays. The process walks the line between conscious and subconscious. Lyrics: Hundred shadows picking and biting insides of me. Swimming in between all the colours Calm is an island Chaos is my armour I can be jealous of her I can beg myself to change But silently waiting for you to stay away. As I walk the city As I jump on the district line as I punch my wants and hug my needs I say goodbye to what I used to be But I still hold her in my deepest thoughts and there, just there secretly I hold you far away from me yet inside of me.
