This is a little piece I did for my friend, Eda. The term Dolce Vita translates to 'Sweet Life". I was asked to do this while a large group of us were intoxicated in a forest. I wanted to pose a visual question about a hedonistic lifestyle that so many young Irish people follow. In this piece I show a seeker of momentary pleasures and wonder if these physical gratifications (sex, drugs and alcohol) really benefit us. If we have all these luxuries at hand, do we become better or is it a repetitive act in degradation?
