This original acrylic painting by Emma van den Akker depicts a man with flowers behind his ear. Just as women in portraits are frequently depicted as soft and happy, men are shown as strong, capable, and powerful. van den Akker's portrait criticises these structured ideals, by painting her subject with soft pinks and reds that are typically considered feminine colors, as well as flowers that are considered inherently feminine.
