Pohojalaanen Ristus(Oil on canvas, 85cmx85cm) 2016

this painting is not part of my 365 project. This painting about Finnish sporthero/antihero Mika Myllylä who was a Finnish sport legend at 90's until he lost everything at Doping scandal. He was totally abandoned after the scandal and in the end he comitted suicide. I have always thought a lot about his life and sport career. How heaven turned to hell how poularity changed to totally outcast etc.
