About EVE
“There are many elements to Eve that made me create the painting in one day,” said David Tineo about his recent work that is being raffled at the Pan Left Brunch on May 15.

The 4 ft. x 4 ft. painting is mostly g ray, black and white, with a touch of RED. “The tears are of joy,” said Tineo, “she’s happy, happy that I’m painting, happy of what she sees.”

You will also notice a butterfly with a pair of eyes, “they are my eyes,” said Tineo, “looking at you.”

On the bottom of the painting is papaya fruit. To Tineo, this represents love, sex, and passion. “It’s a very sensual piece,” Tineo said. “You’ll also see the yin yang symbol, how opposites exist in relation to each other,” he said, “man and woman.”

Tineo said he hasn’t done a piece like this in five years and this is the last of the Frida series.

You can own Eve by purchasing a $10 raffle ticket.
