No. 10

I don’t think I’ve posted a painting in some time, so… let me start by apologizing to your cones and rods (I’ll find something a little less saturated for everyone’s recovering retinas tomorrow).

Today is an experiment. Back in the day (when I produced a successful marginal webcomic), I drew a strip referencing Andy Warhol / Pop Art. The outcry was… surprising. Honestly, I’m indifferent to most Pop Art, but if poor A.W. was still alive, the majority of my audience would have called for his white-haired head.

It’ll be interesting to see how this goes. Should you find yourself wanting to strangle me, please remember, my lungs are already full of spray paint from the above project. *cough cough wheeze*

See? I’m suffering, too.

  1. To be honest I would like it better without the purple dots. No matter which way I turn my head I still can’t see the naked woman in there…

    • FINALLY!
      Someone else who doesn’t abhor Warhol! I wouldn’t say he’s my favorite painter of all time (that’s Edward Hopper), but I’m puzzled as to why so many people dislike him so much…

  2. I’m lovin’ the green, the yellow and the black, but I think I would have preferred a little less of the pink. I think it’s a needed element to complete the composition but it’s dominating it. But, as we all know, art lies in the eye of the beholder, so my opinion is worthless, except for me. 😉

  3. I like your painting and Andy Warhol fascinates me. I did a presentation on him when I was at college. I played David Bowie’s song on a tape recorder and handed out copies of the lyrics. I really like his use of repetition: same, same but different. I love collections of things partly for that reason. I’m not sure that Mr Warhol was a very nice person but I love him anyway.

  4. Well I for one love this painting! It’s wild and graphic and has a great guerrilla art feel to it with the spray paint and bold design. The photo doesn’t do it justice really since you can’t make out the textures and 3D qualities. If it didn’t slam you in the face this piece wouldn’t work at all.. but since it DOES it’s awesome! KA-POW! LOVE IT!

  5. I’ve looked and looked but I can’t see a naked woman anywhere Tony.
    Andy Warhol….. Campbell Soup who knew!

  6. 1.) Coming from the photography/graphic art side of the visual arts makes me pre-disposed to love Andy’s work.

    2.) Hopper is badass…nuff said.

    3.) Your spouse is right, your piece works precisely because it snaps. I really like the painting…especially the PINK DOTS. I would hang it on my wall (of course I would pay for it first ;-))

    • Who knew this style cold be so polarizing?! Love it or hate it, I guess.

      He’s still the man.

      I thought so at first… I think in larger scale they help, too… for some reason… I think…

      Thanks, Mr. J.! 🙂

  7. Love it! *Enamel* and acrylic? See, I would never have thought to use enamel on a painting. (Which only goes to confirm that I am not an artist). 🙂
