About

Three people. A shirtless man. A woman smoking a cigarette. A third person feeling isolated and separate. All crowded into a dingy urban space. There's just something about this painting that is engaging. A strange narrative. Urban outsider art.

Painted on Grumbacher canvas artist board. Measure: 22" x 28".
