+ OVERVIEW

“A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Doodle", based on the French master of Pointillism, Georges Seurat’s well-known masterpiece "A Sunday on La Grande Jatte". Seurat best represented Pointillism and served as an important figure in Neo-Impressionism. The imagery of people resting and walking along the riverside with trees under the shining sun, fishing and also sailing, the atmosphere is so peaceful and harmonious. The lady wearing a hat and holding an umbrella on the right side of the painting is a classic visual phenomenon, exhibiting a Sunday afternoon full of style and fun. Mr Doodle reinterprets into his own graffiti art with his unique and novel personal perspective.
