Thank you a lot for the positive comment! He is a French hiphop singer pretty well known in his country. Anyway, I'm really glad you like this piece!

Thank you a lot! I'm glad you can feel the emotion in this piece cause it's not obvious on neutral expression! =)

Well as a portrait artist myself I always try my best to detect emotion in the human face.

love this work. Why the monument on the left though?
Reply

Thank you!

This monument symbolizes both an old civilization (the Egyptian one) and the european colonialism of the 18th-19th century. Since Abd Al Malik (as most of French rappers) represents the sons of african migrants, it does make sense to me to make this monument appear behind him in the horizon of his past.
