Under Water

I am happy to announce that my "Under Water" painting is now complete.  This digital painting took close to 700 hours of work (Feb 2016-Dec 2016) and can be printed as a very large indoor/outdoor mural (more details soon).  This will be my last digital painting for a while as I return to the studio to work on large traditional hand paintings.

Surreal Salon 10

2018

 

Ron English, juror for the upcoming international juried exhibition Surreal Salon 10, has chosen my painting "The Squeeze" to be included at the Baton Rouge Gallery Center for Contemporary Art from January 3 - 31, 2018.  I am beyond thrilled to be selected to participate!

"The Surreal Salon, an annual exhibition, celebrates the growing quality, popularity, and diversity of the pop-surrealist/lowbrow movement...  This year's exhibition features more than 60 works, each hand-selected by Special Guest Juror, Ron English.  The result of more than 600 submissions fielded by the gallery from across the globe, this collection of works includes artists from five different countries and 19 U.S. states, giving audiences a unique multi-sensory experience with one-of-a-kind contemporary art.

 

Ron English is one of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today... New York-based painter, designer and street artist Ron English has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images, on the street, in museums, in movies, books, television, and music.  English coined the term ‘Popaganda’ to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, creating a visual language that turns advertising into “subvertizing” and parody into illumination."
