Be Optimistic

Print on canvas, 2019

This is a self-portrait by Don Satijn.

The painting consists of the sequences that constitute him (passport number, PIN, credit card number, and so on). On top, a coded message appears in black circles, representing his life.

From 2017 to 2019, Don Satijn painted a series of portraits in this style. Interestingly, the portraits of young people contained many more figures than those of people who were slightly older.
