David van der Linden | Boys keep swinging III
oil on canvas, 100 x 100 cm, 2019

From the moment I decided to paint, I knew that my most important inspiration came from the male nude. Before I graduated, I made a series about growing up as a boy.

The young models, innocent and powerful in their physical expression, are beautiful to work with and to look at as an artist. The series “Boys Keep Swinging” is intended as an ode to the growing boy and is derived from the song of the same name by David Bowie.
