This week I found a wooded area close to Burbank, that turned out to be a beautiful spot full of wildlife. I saw deer, chickens, and even peacock while I was painting. You can hear the sounds of nature in the video below.
My method for painting this piece was to use a scrub brush I had found at the dollar store to spread the paint around the canvas. I also used a can of spray paint without the tip to get an accidental vibe across the board. My favorite part of this piece is the texture on the right side. I used magazine pages topped with acrylic paint to get the look you see here.
Ever since I can remember I've been drawn to gorilla marketing in metropolitan areas, specifically with the use of wheat pasting. I like seeing a flyer repeatedly pasted to a wall. It's a really old technique for marketing and street art, and I've always loved it. I've been experimenting with paper in my work, and so I think we're gonna see a lot more of it.
Thanks for checking out my work and supporting my #OffLocation project.
