Art professor Mytaras masterfully depicts the female figure and her idealized image rendering it with intense colour and a bright palette, strongly contrasting with the burgundy armchair-recliner thus building a dynamic composition. The freedom of the shapes volumes and design and the purity of the color all reflect the senses.  The peculiar deformation to which he subjects the caricature-form allows him to transcend technique and logic while remaining consistent in his mockery of the tri- and bi-dimensional views. His unique expressionist brush skillfully combines types drawn from contemporary art with the traditional values of painting that are foundational to his artistic creativity.
