Mambo digital art

Mambo, RTomens, 2017

For years I danced in clubs and didn't make art. Today I make art but don't dance in clubs, not that one should replace the just has. In a time machine I would travel back to a 1950s club and Mambo with Gina Lollobrigida. Then I would come back and be glad of a current technology which allows me to create images like the one above. She's a film star whose name I've forgotten. The original photo was in an old film annual which has since been lost. I like to think that through digital means I have created something of the intoxicating atmosphere of a club where, fuelled by cocktails and the Mambo beat, the world becomes a giddy whirl...
