Background history on "Mangoes" NFT
This artwork is a digitally altered version of an original oil painting of mine. The original oil painting was purchased by the State of Hawai'i.
"Our lives during the pandemic changed drastically. More time with our loved ones we lived with, but many of us are also more isolated. As evidenced by nature, there is a time for summer’s sweet mangoes, and a time when we will pass on. It is all a part of the greater fabric of life.
The juxtaposition of people in the painting represents the challenges we have had to deal with in 2020. But it also represents the coming together of a multi-cultural global community. For the first time in most of our lives we have been affected by something on a global scale regardless of culture."
