OIL WITH PYROGRAPHY ON MANGO WOOD

The painting is made with oil on mango wood, its originality stands out among the other paintings by David because it has a clear contemporary style. The element that gives this painting an interesting charisma are the burst of colors in the background, which make you want to contemplate at length.
