“In the 70’s, I used to work out at this Gold’s Gym in California, and one day this wrestling promoter comes in and says: ‘I need a black guy, a Chinese guy, and an Indian—- he said Indian, but he meant Native American.’ I happened to be working out with a black friend and a Chinese friend, so I said: ‘We can do it! I can be an Indian!’ So he agreed, and he moved us into this empty warehouse to live. Then he gave us $600 per week to do a bunch of coke and beat the shit out of each other before Roller Girls events.”

Thomas Ganter, Man with a Plaid Blanket, 2014, oil on canvas, [no dimensions], currently on display at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
Here we have the winning portrait from this year’s BP Portrait Awards. Ganter’s piece is a depiction of a homeless man from Frankfurt named Karel. The sitter’s pose and surroundings - namely the gold background and coffee-cup rose - are crucial to the portrait’s overall effect. Ganter has said of the work: ‘By portraying a homeless man in a manner reserved for nobles or saints, I tried to emphasise that everyone deserves respect and care. Human dignity shouldn’t be relative, or dependent on socioeconomic status.’ [Source]. I adore this concept, but I do think that Karel’s facial expression is really what makes this piece as compelling as it is.
