I painted a picture of a Benguet Head Hunter for our final exhibit. I am always fascinated by our nation’s past and I wanted to paint it in such a way that the modern audience will be engaged. I had an idea that being headhunter, he’s like a wolf out to find his prey. So I overlayed an image of a wolf to the image of the headhunter.  I made the wolf’s eyes and ears match the headhunter’s.  Surrounding the image are gestural strokes and spatters to express his violent nature.

And yeah I got the title from that Duran-Duran song, but I also like Hole’s version of the song. 🙂
