On Blind Date by Ego Rodriguez the scene happens on a restaurant. A client sat on a table for two is kissing a waiter. On the red background of this narrative concept art the observer can see the faces of other clients, some cheerful, some shocked. The scene shows the leftovers on two plates and the wine glasses at half. Is there a third person? If so, where this person is at the moment of this kiss? Another great narrative piece of art by Ego Rodriguez that shows a scene where the audience is invited to jump in and continue the story behind.
I love the storytelling of artists like Al Parker and Gil Elvgren. Social narrative with humour and confidentiality with the viewer. Being queer means fight repression, cultural stigma. I push my work to represent these values challenged. To believe.
Blind Date has the Ego Rodriguez illustration signature of narrative concept art in its all greatness. This narrative piece of art shows a sweet moment of what a blind date can offer. The surprise, the unexpected, and the beauty of two persons feeling attracted by each other in an original art idea. When thinking of queer art is great to be reminded of the similarities of it compared to any other instance of art where love, attraction, and excitement play the main roles in the narrative artwork. More narrative art images among Ego Rodriguez art creations can be found on the web. One of those examples is Rear Window from the Night Series collection.
