The Film series

I made the bulk of these paintings in 2016. The theme: “unimportant scenes from films I like (and one TV-series)”. The whole process started when I was commuting and accidentally paused the movie I was watching. The pause-frame was so perfect I just had to paint it. See if you can guess the films I’ve used as reference (spoiler at the bottom of this page). The titles might also give you a hint:

I put a spell on you, 150x100cm
Budapest, 95x60cm
It’s a sad and beautiful world, 95x60cm
You’re so cool, 95x60cm
Knox, 95x60cm
Audrey, 95x60cm
Damn fine coffee! And hot! 40x50cm
Motorcycle boy, 95x60cm
Wild Deuces, 50x40cm
The motorcycle boy reigns, 50x40cm
