We choose Rosseau because the inherent exploration/Jungle feel to his work. Took a few days of prep and 2 long days in studio to get the shot done..saids Erik Almas

About the painter:

Henri Julien Félix Rousseau (May 21, 1844 – September 2, 1910) was a French Post-Impressionist painter in the Naïve or Primitive manner. He was also known as Le Douanier (the customs officer), a humorous description of his occupation as a toll collector. Ridiculed during his life, he came to be recognized as a self-taught genius whose works are of high artistic quality
