Under The Influence: Beastie Boys Tribute

Oh My God, It’s a Mirage
21 x 15.5 in.
oil, graphite and spray paint on masonite


This is my painting for the Beastie Boys tribute show @ Gallery 1988 in LA. I had a tough time coming up with a concept for this show, but it was a good challenge. I'm happy with my idea but I'm still not sure how I feel about the overall painting. I did do some experimenting with spray paint (it doesn't show in the scan, but the background is GOLD) and stenciling which I enjoyed, but I must say that I'm glad to be working in full color again on my current sure to check out the show if you're in the area, it opens January 8th @ Gallery 1988 LA
