This painting is part of my VISAGES collection - portraits of the emotions, motivations, or states portrayed in Homer's The Iliad. The honor, pain and fury of these 3,000 year old characters are sought out and exposed through the modern mediums of oil, latex and spray paint.
The fury of Diomedes, latex paint on canvas, 18 x 25", 2017
One of Greece's greatest warriors, king of Argos, and often a partner in Odysseus' schemes, Diomedes is another favorite of the goddess Athena. She endows him with supernatural strength, and he proceeds to defeat many Trojan heroes as well as injuring the very gods themselves.
