This painting is a close-up of famous manga character Astro Boy. The idea of this composition is to change the perspetive of how we envision comic caracters as a representation of mainstream culture. The close-up is a questionning on the way we consider icons of popular culture as part of the fine arts ecosystem. This painting is also a in relation with french filmakers of the "nouvelle vague" that extensively used close-ups in their oeuvre so as to provoke strong feelings of disgust or envy.
