In emotionally-charged monolithic portraits and dark panoramic landscapes, Picture’s Not Perfect by Melvin Culaba delves into the psyche of the artist and his society. Each canvas plays out almost as a psycho-social mystery, where the viewer seeks to uncover the impetus behind the situational drama and underlying melancholy that permeates each composition.
