Tyson Boxing T shirt as Landscape with my Shirt.

The inspiration for this painting came from a family safari to Kenya. It was just around the time that Mike Tyson was in disgrace, having bit Evander Holyfield on the ear.

We were out one day on route to the game park, traveling through a township market when Steven spotted a black and white printed T shirt featuring Mike Tyson, he got the driver to stop and ran back to buy it.

The t shirt forms the landscape at the bottom of the painting, while Steven’s own holiday shirt (which still hangs in his wardrobe) forms a representation of self while adding another landscape element of sky and sun.
