Thanos Study in Gouache

ARTIST: Jordan Rhodes, United States
ARTIST STATEMENT: I painted this gouache study out of excitement and anticipation of the upcoming movie Avengers Endgame. This particular scene was from Infinity War when Thanos was explaining his motivation behind his quest to eliminate half of the universe. While at the surface it is a cruel intention, it is one solution to the difficult issue of overpopulation. While he is obviously the villain, he genuinely believes that he is doing the right thing, and is willing to sacrifice anything toward achieving his ambition.

MEDIA: Gouache
SURFACE: Nova Series – Heavyweight – 150 gsm – Beige – Medium Grain
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Jordan Rhodes is currently a chemistry Ph.D. candidate in Nashville TN. In his free time he makes art for fun, primarily focusing on portraiture. His preferred mediums are watercolor, gouache, and Copic markers.
