Isn't is considered a minor miracle if Bono manages to work any of his buttons?

Thanks for sharing this!  I really like it!

Any significance to Bono being on the left and Elvis on the right!?  (and to being right next to Jesus?)

Thanks guys!

Yes, that is a pint o' Guinness in front of Bono! :D :)

Well, I wanted to place Bono sitting right next to Jesus from the beginning. But I wanted him and Lennon to be on separate sides (Lennon being Judas, but still close to Jesus) so, since 'Judas' in Leonardo's painting is on Jesus's right, I placed John Lennon on there, so it was automatically a reason to put Bono on the left side of Jesus. (I think in Leonardo's painting, that seat is occupied by Philip)

And yes, that is Springsteen between Bono and Freddie :) :D

Thanks for the feedback guys! (no pun intended! :P )

Well at least you didn't portray Bono as Jesus.

Hahah!
The town priests would've killed me if I did that!

However it was on my mind once.. Then I thought of doing Elvis as Jesus. But in the end, it just wouldn't have worked in the exhibition I worked it for, so I just had to  put Jesus there.
And, who was I to put as Jesus??! The world would tell me Elvis or Lennon, but I'd keep saying Bono.
Hahah...


At the exhibition opening, I asked the most close-minded and old priest of our town to see what he thinks of it... He just told me "One cannot explain what's in the mind of an artist." .. Then he started a 30-minute speech about the Vatican, which first of all, doesn't have anything to do with this painting, and I didn't understand a thing of what he said... Hah

I assumed since this was for a church think you held off on that. There are enough jokes about Bono's complex to go around.

I dont know a lot about some of the other stars you selected for this painting so I assume there's a thought-out reason for each and every one. I can say that knowing my other favorite--John Lennon--I think I can understand why he is in Judas' spot. I dont think it's a slight against him, though... Because I think Lennon was hurting a lot from his childhood and perhaps felt betrayed by God/Jesus.

I love the expression on Bono's face in this painting too... Because that's how I picture he would look if he did get to have dinner with Jesus. :) He looked humbled and shocked. It's great!
