Lisa Lyon was ahead of her time. Back in the day, she was at the forefront of female bodybuilding. She was described as the “Michelangelo’s David. ”
In this painting, Lisa Lyon is both male and female, because she had to use all that was within her to cope with the challenges that she faced. Lisa also had an MRI done to make sure there was not something physically wrong because, in times like these, you start to question your own sanity.
As an artist, Lisa saw the world in a different light where she did imagine the un-imaginable and followed her path to the unknown. She was competing in a man’s world in a field where women bodybuilding did not exist.
When you are in the forefront, you have to use fear and the underworld guardians to energize you. You have to act on instinct, have tenacity, spontaneity, and use the genius of the human spirit to find the treasures and “Save the prince.”
Eriberto was Lisa Lyon’s personal assistant for some time and has exclusive photos of her. This painting is based on one of those photos.
