'Dancer 2' is part of a series inspired by an incredibly talented Ukrainian ballet dancer. In 2010 Sergei Polunin became the Royal Ballet's youngest ever principal. The dance video to the song Take me to church in 2015 exposed him to a wider audience. I fell in love with his dark beauty, his graceful yet powerful moves and his controversial personality. The use of black and white on an opulant baroque background reflects the fusion between the modernity and the classicism of his dancing.
