The Dance



Inspired by Timo Kuilder (zwartekoffie) and his interpretation of "The Dance", a famous painting created in 1910 by Henri Matisse.

This started out as a quick and simple illustration challenge just for fun, but then I've challenged myself to push it a bit further.

This piece was created one day before WHO has officially declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a pandemic. Therefore, the whole situation has had a huge influence on the final result of the image.  Those who have a keen eye for detial and metaphor, might find some hidden but relevant references there.

︎ Don't forget to watch the time-lapse video below, showing the whole drawing process.  

Feel like making your own interpretation? Send me your take on this or tag us (me and Timo) in your post. I'll share it on my instagram.
