"You Only Get One Shot"

I painted this piece while listening to Eminem’s songs, and after recently watching a powerful video about his life and his struggles.

Eminem's emotional and artistic range, his full of anguish and turbulent lyrics, and his way of expressing his personal experiences made a huge impression on me.

The text I incorporated in my painting, “You Only Get One Shot,” is from his song, “Lose Yourself.”

The repetition of the words “You Only,” on the left and the “Get One Shot,” written with very large, firm letters on the right, contrast with the chaotic background and bring strength and stability and determination and hope to the composition.
