Yana's Napoleon

This painting has a humorous touch to it. A woman named Yana, she probably was Russian or Ukrainian, contacted me one day asking me to do a unique painting: her boyfriend portrayed as Napoleon. Despite his strong-willed demeanor, she cherished their bond, even amidst the challenges of his formidable character. With a touch of humor and a nod to history, she entrusted me with the task of transforming him into the iconic Napoleon Bonaparte.

Drawing inspiration from a renowned depiction of Napoleon, I transposed his visage onto the historical figure's commanding stance. This fusion of past and present, of personality and history, culminated in a painting that not only celebrated their relationship's distinctive dynamics but also added an artistic layer to their shared journey.
