Self-Portrait Superman

Pin It

In this illustration based on a cutout painting, Leonardo shows himself as two different heroes at once —– Superman and the Mexican wrestler known as Superbarrio. Both can be icons in our lives and when they combine into one self-portrait... blastoff!

Shaun El C. Leonardo blends personal narrative and pop-cultural iconography from his childhood within self-portraiture as a means to convey the complexities of his own masculine and racial identity. These hybridizations take the form of cutout paintings using a specialized, sign-painting enamel.
