"Is there a cure for this hunger?
A terrible curse to be under
I'll be sleeping with that
And it's no small thing
You'll smoke me out in your own ways
And we'll spin around until morning"
by Alejandro "Ale" Gonzalez
Hunger is a visual representation of dwelling in feelings of lust. Particularly in moments in which these are not considered to be opportune. Stylistically, the piece takes cues from early 20th century Expressionism and Street Art in formal aspects such as degrees of abstraction, color relationship, and line application. It originally started as a traditional pen and ink drawing, which was then scanned and colored through Photoshop.
