The social media profile picture or avatar is a visual signature of ones activity on the internet. People tend to do awkward collages for their profile pictures which can be seen as their alter ego. I combined the traditional medium of oil painting with the aesthetic of virtual avatars to create avatar-paintings. By this way I’m putting the viewer in the role of a psychoanalytic in front of a patient trying to unveil the hidden content behind it.
