Sir Gawain and The Black Aria by Borruen
Sir Gawain and The Black Aria
This is my latest painting. It was based on Arthurian legends, medieval folklore and a tad bit of Dark Souls. I'm trying a new painting technique. Depending on the feedback I might develop it a bit more. Hope you like it :D
Ubu Roi, Ubu King by Borruen
Ubu Roi, Ubu King
This was a quick one I did a while ago. I completely forgot about it but then I found it while cleaning my hard drives. 

This is the face of Père Ubu, the protagonist of the proto-Absurdist play Ubu Roi. According to wikipedia because I'm too lazy to write:

"It was first performed in Paris at the Théâtre de l’Œuvre, causing a riotous response in the audience as it opened and closed on December 10, 1896. It is considered a wild, bizarre and comic play, significant for the way it overturns cultural rules, norms, and conventions. For those who were in the audience on that night to witness the response, including William Butler Yeats, it seemed an event of revolutionary importance. It is now seen by some to have opened the door for what became known as modernism in the twentieth century. It is a precursor to the Theatre of the Absurd and Surrealism. It is the first of three stylised burlesques in which Jarry satirises power, greed, and their evil practices—in particular the propensity of the complacent bourgeoisie to abuse the authority engendered by success."

on Père Ubu, the crazy, absurd protagonist:

"According to Jane Taylor, "The central character is notorious for his infantile engagement with his world. Ubu inhabits a domain of greedy self-gratification." Jarry's metaphor for the modern man, he is an antihero—fat, ugly, vulgar, gluttonous, grandiose, dishonest, stupid, jejune, voracious, cruel, cowardly and evil—who grew out of schoolboy legends about the imaginary life of a hated teacher who had been at one point a slave on a Turkish Galley, at another frozen in ice in Norway and at one more the King of Poland. Ubu Roi follows and explores his political, martial and felonious exploits."

It's a play worth watching. A French TV made a more friendlier-still-totally-bizarre-version in 1965, but I guess it was taken down from youtube. Either way, check it out, it has some very interesting concepts and may be very inspiring to you all.
Battle Between Mitros and Al-Hazem, The Fury by Borruen

This is a piece I made as a passtime for quite some time now. I have just graduated and the last two semesters were a pain, so I needed something to relax. I started this painting mostly as something casual that I would work on from time to time. I changed it a lot throughout these months, but I never got really satisfied. Today I decided it was time to move on and so I published it. I tried some new techniques so, it will be probably lacking a bit in terms of technical expertise, but I think I'll get better now that I have more time to dedicate myself again to drawing. Anyways, hope you like it.

All I can say is that your gallery is simply amazing. Your older work (mostly from 2010) is beautiful, but I'm particularly in love with your newer work. They feel like Kids' dreams captured in the creative mind of an artist, a wonderful combination. You manage to create a truly unique feeling with these works.
The red colors you use create a pleasantly warm feeling, which adds a lot to the experience.

Looking forward to seeing more of this!
