Again, this new style that I have started to develop deals with the thought of merging the ideas and concepts of Graphic Design with the technical and organic attributes of painting.
This is a 24″x48″ canvas. This painting was created with hand-made stencils and spray paint.
I’ve wanted to do a piece that was strictly spray paint for a long time. This may sound odd to some, but I’ve always found extreme beauty in graffiti art. I love the bright colors, the runs in the paint, and the blending capabilities that can be explored using spray paint. I also created several stencils for this piece. I hand drew all of them, then very nervously sat for a couple of hours and cut them out with a razor blade, the whole time wondering if I had made the right cuts and if the image in my head would show up in the end.
The verse that is stamped on this piece is from Amos 3:8.
