"Art does not exist only to entertain, but also to challenge one to think, to provoke, even to disturb, in a constant search for truth" -Barbara Streisand.
Here, depicted, is a confronting piece of art. Titled "A Fallen Star", this piece dabbles in the harsh realities of the music world. Depicted is a man many look upon with a fondness and a revere - Kevin Jonas. Known for his unmatchable efforts to solidify his former band, The Jonas Brothers, as the culturally significant icon it is today.
But behind the glamour of a successful career, the mask falls off, and the viewer witnesses a broken man. His eyes, blanketed by the dark bags which hang beneath them, tell a story of loss, and heartbreak. For years, Kevin was ridiculed as the 'worst Jonas', the 'least attractive Jonas'. These are the comments that cut deep into the mans soul, providing the subject that bleakly stares out at the viewer from the pictorial frame.
Truly a challenging and provoking piece.
