The World Is Yours | The Collection
by Marieli Delgado
Coming from a small boring bean town, I’ve always been very fascinated by gangster movies. I’ve seen them all a thousand times... The God Father, Goodfellas, Casino... I’ve seen every episode of The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, everything... you name it, I’ve seen it... I love gangsters. I don’t know what it is about them. I guess you can say that I’m the good girl that’s attracted to the bad boys...
But anyway, my all-time favorite is Scarface. It’s very relatable to me, because I’m Spanish, and I grew up in Florida in the early eighties. Scarface is special. It’s a classic... It’s a timepiece, and if you know me, you know I love timepieces... 70’s disco-tech vibes, the fashion, the music, plus you can learn so many valuable life lessons in this movie.
For example, you see this guy; a Cuban refugee named Tony Montana. He comes over here with absolutely nothing, and he doesn’t let the rules of society dictate what he can and can’t do. He climbs to the top, and lives the dream.
If you would like a print of this piece I created, a small number is still available if you join THE ART SUBSCRIPTION. They are only going to be available until the end of this month so time is of the essence. If you would like to know more about it you can click here.
Nite, nite My Art Lovers,
and remember... The world is yours...
