I was commissioned to paint a picture on the topic of Man and Technology.
I wished to set up a possible scene representing a dialogue between a schoolboy and an android.
My concern about where technology might lead us made me to paint an encounter with hints of uncertainties and possible dangers but also expressing a certain benevolence.
I chose classical realism to make the scene more solemn and timeless.
