Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson portrait painting starts crying.

The Michael Jackson portrait painted by artist Peter Engels was water damaged in a French art gallery during a nightly storm. As a result, it looks as if Michael cries. As if teardrops roll down his face.

It looks like a supernatural phenomenon. As if Michael Jackson wants to tell us something from the grave. Artist Peter Engels is not superstitious, but he thinks that the tears give the painting an extra dimension. The artist tries to find a plausible explanation for this: “I painted this portrait on the island of Lombok. To give the paint more texture, I mixed beach sand in it. Normally oil and acrylic paint can tolerate a splash of water. But apparently not when it is mixed with this sand.”

Michael Jackson’s right eye started to tear when rainwater seeped in the gallery where the artist had an exhibition. Artist Peter Engels: “I will leave it this way. Mother Nature gave the painting the perfect finishing touch.”
