Brent Nolasco created ‘Hunger Pains’ for the upcoming online art auction (12.1 – 12.7) to benefit FEESA’s (Feed Employ Educate South Africa) efforts to assist the impoverished South African community of Kayamandi. Brent’s piece features Hunger clad in armor complete with a possum skull so that he might play dead as those that would seek to vanquish him approach. The frog atop ‘hunger’ longs for a kiss for a transformative opportunity. Hunger Pains was created with graphite, pencil, and water color on gesso board and measures 18” x 24”. Hit the jump for a series of exclusive progression shots.
