343 Portrait of Joko Widodo


See the original photo here

and the rest of my “Rulers of the World” series here

This is Joko Widodo, the president of Indonesia
He looks like a nice guy – and then he likes metal music like “Napalm Death”.. If I were Indonesian, I think I’d vote for this guy. Well perhaps I’d just briefly look into what he stands for, but seriously, it can’t go wrong!

While painting this one, I was looking at a video by Zimou Tan simultanously. It’s really amazing to see how his paintings evolve. I tried to copy his technique a little bit.
