Artist's statement

English actor, Rowan Atkinson, is famous for his Mr Bean character, but does not want to be that character all the time. During a recent visit, I was very careful not to make any mention of Mr Bean or the television show, and instead talked about cars, which is one of his passions. As a result, he was happy to be himself in this portrait.
