"Jeff Koons & Damien Hirst share the art market"

"Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst share the art market" was inspired by Michael Houellebecq's novel "The Map and the Territory". I've shown two artists from different cultures who are quite strong personalities in the contemporary art world. The painting is full of references to their art (like the skull, inflatable dolphin, shark or Koons' relationship with Cicciolina which is expressed by the artificial erotic doll). Like in most of my paintings, everything seems to be on the borderline, placed between real space and postcard view, between lifeless sculptures and real figures of artists, between irony and honest respect to sanctioned art and artists.

Breakfast on the Beach

I would like to present to you "Breakfast on the Beach" today.
I am interested in what associations you have looking at this painting.
Lovers sunbathing at the seaside, a modern version of "The Luncheon on the Grass", consumerism and artificiality of the contemporary world?
I had all of those thoughts while painting that picture.
