This painting is an homage to some former neighbors of mine. Back in the 1980’s I lived in an apartment building where I was literally the only tenant who did not wear a mohawk hairstyle. There were furry mohawks, spikey mohawks, dyed mohawks, etc. I always found those gravity defying hairstyles so interesting! My neighbors and I were friendly with one another and I now regret not ever asking how they accomplished those amazing mohawks.
