Painting made with acrylic on Egyptian handmade papyrus. This piece features a mummy characterized as a classic American-style caricature. As it unwraps its bandages, it surrounds the entire composition filling it with vitality with a naïve aspect. The rigid structure of the drawing on the character contrasts in perfect balance with a colorful background composed of blotches, drips, and a rapid, vehement brushstroke that rejects form. The artist has implemented experimental techniques reminiscent of pop art and urban art.
