Good Evening, this is Peter Lorre

by Jeremy Wilson

“Good Evening, this is Peter Lorre.”

For this portrait I wanted to depict the gravity and weight that Peter Lorre carried throughout his acting roles and his life. He often played villainous roles in his acting and struggled with morphine addiction later in his life. I used an image from the movie, “Mad Love”, for reference, as it showed the emotion I wanted for the concept.
