Winnie the wu

 

I grew up listening to Wu Tang and Gangsta rap so when I thought of the “Winnie the Wu” idea all the other fun elements in this painting started to come together.  There are 10 “KILLA BEES” that represent the 10 original members of the Wu Tang Clan.  The pot says C.R.E.A.M instead of HONEY which of coarse stands for “CASH RULES EVERYTHING AROUND ME”, and lastly Winnie is rockin a Wu hoodie.  The original was painted with layering spray paint, acrylic and oil on wood panel.  This is a dope piece for any Wu-Tang fan or lowbrow, urban street art collector. Start em young “Wu tang is for the children”.

‘super mario bros pipe dream girl’

 

As a child of the 80’s I grew up playing the classic video games and one of the all time greats is Mario Bros!  This painting is a new one in my series of found art repaints.  When I saw this piece the house reminded me of the castle that the princess was in.  Once I saw that I couldn’t unsee it and I had to transform it into a Super Mario Bros painting.  Its painted with oil and acrylic on panel.  16″ by 20″  limited edition signed numbered prints are available.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN DAY

 

I happily read that they have dedicated an Anthony Bourdain Day! It will be June 25th (his Birthday). Although the anniversary of his death is 6/8/2018, long time friends @chefjoseandres and @ericripert announced the 25th will be the official day to share your memories,tributes, and love for the life and legacy of Anthony.  I painted this “ANTHONY BOURDAIN CHEF LIFE” piece as a tribute to him after his tragic death.  I have so many friends in the Restaurant/Bar industry that requested some sort of tribute painting because of how much he meant to them.  I too was a big fan so it was a no brainer.  I was also able to team up with a local restaurant, Nico Heirloom Kitchen that was doing a charity dinner, and I donated a few custom hand painted “chef life” prints and we raised a significant amount of money for suicide prevention.  My  Anthony Bourdain “CHEF LIFE” prints are on sale and hand painted one off’s are available as well.  I will be donating a percentage of the sales to a suicide relief charity.

updates and new art

 

I have been working on some cool new art and had a couple pretty awesome experiences along the way. 

UPDATE: I am fortunate to have friends that work in some awesome fields and one being the Marijuana Insurance industry at THE GREEN SHIELD. They Insure Mike Tyson’s new Cannabis Company ‘TYSON RANCH’. I was invited to attend Their inaugural kick off event in Palm Springs where I was able to meet ‘Iron Mike’ and gift him the knuckle tattoo painting. I dont usually get star struck but when your standing in front of Mike Tyson it is a bit intimidating.  He is an extremely nice guy and thought the piece was “awesome”! 

 

NEW ART: I have been playing around with “thrift store repaints”, meaning I find somewhat nicely done paintings (mostly landscapes) at secondhand stores and add fun clever elements into them to make them my own. I am definitely not the first to do this but it is alot of fun and I am stoked on the pieces I have created so far.   Starting with the top painting

“BILL AND TEDS EXCELLENT TRIP TO THE BEACH”. This painting was inspired by the news of Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter doing a new Bill and Teds movie! This was exciting news not only because most of the original movie was filmed in Arizona at locations 10 minutes from my house but because it is such a cult classic and it will be fun to see what they do with the sequel. 

“SORRY CHARLIE”

This painting is a reference to the growing pollution mankind is dumping into the ocean and the over fishing and whaling that takes place with no consequences besides the possible extinction of species.  Its extremely sad to see all of the garbage floating and washing up on the Beaches, It’s sad when they open the stomach of animals to see garbage and plastic inside.  It’s sad to see the predictions of how much more plastic than fish will be in our oceans future. It’s sad to watch the coral reefs dying before our eyes. We need to make some changes to how we live so we can enjoy this beautiful planet as long as possible. No Ocean, No Earth! 

“DONT JUST FLY, SOAR”

Dumbo is one of my all time favorite movies! when I heard that they were coming out with a remake of it I was happy and nervous at the same time.  Once I saw the strong cast and Tim Burton being the director, I was more confident that they would not messing it up.  After seeing it I think they all did a great job. I enjoyed how they incorporated alot of the elements from the original (minus the black crows) which is probably a good idea because those would not be very PC these days. I painted Dumbo as the newer CGI although I still love the original cartoon version. I also added Timothy the mouse and the 5 black crows. Although they were a bit racist they were still awesome you just have to remember that the original movie was filmed in 1941 and it was a different time.   I love the way this painting turned out! It just makes me happy, its 2 of my very favorite things. I do have giclee prints of this available 

“RAINBOW CONNECTION”

The inspiration of this painting was the general look of the water and trees.  It reminded me of the ‘Rainbow connection’ video. After re-watching it, Kermit sitting on that log was the perfect addition for it.  I came up with a different pose for him, maybe right before or after he played the banjo and sang the song.   I also added the marijuana plant and the rainbow joint with smoke fading into the colorful sky.  With April 4th or 420 approaching soon this will be the perfect painting for it.  My other working title was ” EASY BEING GREEN “. 

I do have some of these available as prints and I’m always creating new work. My artsy brain just doesn’t shut off.

‘iron mike’

” Everyone has a plan till they get punched in the mouth “

I was happy to do this painting of “IRON MIKE” Tyson and add it to my knuckle tattoo series.  I remember when Tyson came into the boxing scene and shocked the world with knockout after knockout.  He was the heavy weight champion of the world and seemed to be unstoppable.  I also remember playing his video game and I could never get past the vanishing “Great Tiger” (I wasn’t very good).   Mike Tyson has definately made his mark on the world, weather it be boxing, video games, acting, (or his cameos in many popular movies), controversial behavior, his one man Broadway Show, and lastly one of my favorite his cartoon series “MIKE TYSON MYSTERIES”, which I felt was very under rated.  Well, he is not done yet, His newest venture is in the Medicinal Marijuana industry with Tyson Ranch.  He is a big advocate of medical marijuana and has developed a 40 acre ranch in California where he grows it.  Tyson Ranch offers many products from your basic flower to infused waters and ointments.  I had fun painting this piece and tried to incorporate some of Tyson’s many achievements.  I do have prints of this available.  They are a limited signed and numbered edition of 250 with a few hand painted one offs.

larry david ‘love hate’

This is my Anti-Valentines Day painting.  I have never liked Valentines day and feel like it’s a corporate holiday that just guilts men into spending money.  It can also makes single people feel left out and lonely, when they should feel content and happy with just loving themselves.  I decided to paint this piece because I love Larry David and have always been a huge Seinfeld fan.  I feel like Larry David’s Character on Curb Your Enthusiasm would also dislike Valentines day.  I thought Larry David’s knuckle tattoos should say “LOVE HATE” in a traditional tattoo lettering.  This will be the sixth painting in my on going ‘knuckle tattoo’ series.  Signed numbered prints of this painting are available. They measure 18″ by 24″ and are a limited edition of only 250.  I will also be doing a few one of a kind hand painted one offs.

‘the scream’

” Marv, why the hell did you take your shoes off? Harry, Why are you dressed like a chicken?”

My ‘THE SCREAM’ painting is finished!! This painting was fun to do. The concept was hilarious to me so I had to paint it. Not all of my ideas make it on to canvas, some dont get past the napkin sketch, or wherever I came up with it and scribbled it down. I really wanted to get it done by Christmas but finished it a few days after. It’s arguably the best scream in movie history and makes me laugh every time I see it.  By popular demand I have prints available.  They are a limited edition signed and numbered edition of 250.

BANKSY

DWIGHT WITH BEET

I have always been a big fan of BANKSY!  I think he is a genius and a marketing wizard!  He has single handedly changed the game of the art industry and the perception of street art AND made “graffiti art” a household name.  Even if you dont know art you still know Banksy.  He keeps the art world on it’s toes and gives artists like me the inspiration and motivation to create new thought provoking art. This is my homage to his iconic ‘GIRL WITH A BALLOON’ piece that was recently shredded at the Sotheby’s auction, which made world wide fame as the first art piece to ever be blah blah blah….. IT WAS JUST AWESOME!!!

The T.V. show the office is one of my favorites and when I think of paper shredding and paper products I think of Dunder Mifflin and Dwight Schrute.  This inspired me to do my newest painting that I titled “BANKSY DWIGHT WITH BEET” (UNSHREDDED) This limited edition signed and numbered print is available for $35.  It measures 11″ by 17″ and is printed on a thick acid free paper stock.

new painting

‘braspberrys’

My newest painting was inspired by the extremely talented and funny Justin Timberlake.  A while back I saw him on one of the late night shows talking about how he puts blueberries inside of raspberries and calls them Braspberry’s.  There was also an instagram video he posted of him creating the fruit that went viral with 30 million views.  With JT’s celebrity status the beverage company Bai caught wind of this and decided to make a “Braspberry” flavored drink.  The funny commercial only added more comedy to the whole fruit phenomenom.

https://youtu.be/RUq44Oq1Qkc

The painting I created is how I think this magical fruit combo might grow in nature if it were real.  I pictured it growing like a cherry and depicted the berries hanging from their long stems. I always enjoyed Justin Timberlakes music, Ironically my car speakers were blown out in Mexico listening to “cry me a river” to loud!  Along with his music and dance moves he is super funny too, and charms us with hilarious skits on SNL and late night talk shows.  I feel like this painting was the perfect way to paint a funny, clever, and sexy painting of him with out it being a boring self portrait.  I even enjoy when I tell people it’s a painting of Justin Timberlake and they dont get it at all.    This painting was done with oil, acrylic, and spray paint on wood panel and measures 18″ by 24″.  This piece was fun to do and might be the beginning of a new series of other mashed up exotic fruit combinations.

Open Edition

Gangsta Jesus

The Gangsta Jesus Image was created back in 2006 while I was in College.  The original was hand carved and woodblock printed.  Because of the popularity of the image I made larger 18″ by 24″ poster prints.  Over the years Gangsta Jesus has become a kind of logo and is more and more recognizable. The fun, some what controversial, art has made its way into homes all over the world.  Grab yours today and be the cool kid on the block.

Memorial Day

Wings for Warriors

I created this painting because I have a lot of friends who have served and some that have unfortunately passed away while fighting for our country. I have mixed feelings about our governments policies and agenda, but I do support the ones who have selflessly chosen to fight and protect us. This painting was also inspired by my friend Anthony Ameen who is a wounded Iraq war veteran, and the founder of  “wings for warriors” which is a non profit campaign that collects money for vets who have been injured or disabled in war and helps with their medical and financial aid. This is a hand signed, numbered and embossed stamped print of the original painting. It will be shipped in a sturdy tube and I will also throw in some free stickers.
