ART100 Boston Recap

It was a beautiful evening filled with positive, creative, talented, innovative people that came together to appreciate each others craft and gain an understanding of each others perspectives. The gallery venue was the renown Piano craft gallery which is also home to some of the worlds well known artist. I had great time with my fiancé talking to people about the premise and meaning of my paintings. Hearing the reactions and responses to the artwork was very inspiring to us because it showed that we have the power to ignite passion in peoples hearts without even saying a word. I was filled with emotion being blessed to sell artwork and be provided with a platform to educate people about whats going on in the world. Now my work is in many diverse house holds and being the center of many thought provoking conversations. I feel truly blessed to have an opportunity to share a little piece of my universe with you. Thank you for your support thus far and stay tuned for my upcoming shows.

Gilgamesh by Sherwin Long

Acrylic painting 
16"x 20" canvas

A character from ancient mythology that was a descendant of a God. I painted this as a part of a series of legendary characters that impacted society but we don't hear much about. Gilgamesh is the central character in the Epic of Gilgamesh, an epic poem from Mesopotamia that is considered the world's first truly great work of literature. The literary history of Gilgamesh begins with five Sumerian poems about 'Bilgamesh' (Sumerian for Gilgamesh). In the epic his father was Lugalbanda and his mother was Ninsun (whom some call Rimat Ninsun), a goddess. In Mesopotamian mythology, Gilgamesh is a demigod of superhuman strength who built the city walls of Uruk to defend his people from external threats, and travelled to meet the sage Utnapishtim, who had survived the Great Deluge. He is usually described as two-thirds god and one third man.
