The Zebra Boy Chronicles - Art

"Zebra Boy" is a creation of figure artist Rene Capone about transformation and adapting to your environment. The only true and constant thing in our lives is change. These artworks were all made while in periods of recovery from multiple orthopedic bone surgeries through 2014 - 02017. My hips and legs were reconstructed with metal because of Avascular Necrosis. Needing an escape - I created a myth, put myself in it and followed it down the river of my imagination. I followed it through two near death experiences and finally to the point where I could start to learn to walk again. This collection of art kept me going, gave me a reason to try. It may have even kept me alive. Never doubt the power of art, it's the only valuable thing on earth, and it transforms lives. I was disabled for four years and these are the images that saved my life. I share them with you in hopes that it may bring you inspiration if you are in a time of need. Having both my hips replaced at age 37 due to pharmaceutical negligence. I understand when people feel hurt both emotionally and physically by no choosing of your own. My art has often spoke for others when they cannot speak for themselves. For this gift to communicate I am great full and humbled.
