    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    "The Joker" is a painting of actor Heath Ledger's incredible portrayal of the Joker in the movie The Dark Knight. He played the role so convincingly, with such authenticity and sociopathic qualities, it was hard to see any hint of Heath Ledger left - he was the Joker. That is what I wanted to portray in the painting - the complete transformation of the actor into this mad character. It is painted with a graffiti style and bright. Bold colors, in acrylic paint on canvas, using a palette knife for texture.
