Do you see the funny side of painting yourself?

Ferrero Rossi, 37

This painting explores the humour in painting a self portrait. It’s not always obvious, or even intentional, but to me there is something hilarious about painting yourself. This is what has always drawn me to self portraits, as humour is very important to my work.

With my trouser portrait I wanted to paint something that was a true depiction of myself without having to show my face, and something funny, even if it was only me who got the joke.
