Big Eyes: The Way I See It

Prior to seeing this film I had never seen Margaret Keane's works and yet I notice an uncanny similarity between what she did as an artist and what I'm trying to accomplish. I also recognize other artists in her work who speak a similar language. Dilka Bear comes to mind immediately. I love her work too.

Movie was definitely inspirational. Her husband's theft, lies and dominance leading to domestic abuse was a dark and pitiful illustration of ambition and desperation gone wild. The movie touched on ideas about sources of inspiration, evolution, the business of art... Great way to spend my time. Growth fam. That's all. Growth.

B Sharp - Snoop (Levi Robinson)

B Sharp Title: "B Sharp"

Canvas Size: 30” x 40”

Signed & Titled: Yes

Original: Contact for pricing

I know I've been out of the loop for a while. Life was happenin. But I haven't stopped hitting the canvas. This is a piece I call "B Sharp." It's a play on the obvious musical note, the neighborhood nickname "B" and the state of being sharply dressed. I enjoyed working on this piece and I just kept it real loose the way I like it.

Valentine's Day Gala: Had a nice time. Displayed some artwork, marketed our self hosted exhibit in March, ate well, and got my wobble on. That, ladies and gentlemen is how you mix business with pleasure. Class dismissed.

WynWood Walls, Miami: Graffiti Burner

Watch this carefully. It's a graffiti piece from Wynwood Walls... in the Miami design district. The burner turns from blue to black as you change angles. Sick. Whoever the artist is...he/she's nice. #graffiti #art #miami #streetart

Singular Sensations Art Exhibit

Sorry I've been missing for a while. I've been otherwise occupied. During the time I was gone I entered my first art exhibit. What's amazing is, one of my pieces was the first off the wall! It was an incredible experience that has me now anxious to keep this thing going. Stayed tuned. It's about to get real interesting.

Paul Goodnight: A Modern American Master

20130928-104541.jpg Paul Goodnight is easily one of my favorite artists. I think his work is incredible. His use of color, movement and juxtaposition is truly unique. He does most of his work in soft pastels. Do yourself a favor and check this guy out. His story is fascinating too. He's a Vietnam vet who as a result of post traumatic stress, for a time was unable to speak. So he turned to art as a means by which to express himself. I think he's a wizard...you will too. Enjoy.

Meditation - Snoop (Levi Robinson)

image Title: "Meditation"

Matted Size: 5” x 7” Image Size: 4” x 6” Signed & Titled: Yes Number: 1/100 Original: Sells for $150 on Canvas panel (framed)

My daughter says to me "ewwwww Daddy why is she sittin on the toilet?" My answer, "cause it's real, it's natural, and it's funny." Maybe my sense of humor is a little twisted. This was actually the first piece of the series of small whimsical bathroom images. "Serenity" was the second.

Once again folks, eyes closed. Who ever sits in a serene state with their eyes wide open. No one does that. C'mon. Had fun with this little piece. It's one of a series of three mini whimsicals. I will post each of the others as well in the weeks to come.

Ruff Neck - Snoop (Levi Robinson)

20130905-112245.jpg Title: “Ruff Neck ” Image Size: 5” x 5” Framed Size: 10" x 10" Signed & Titled: Yes Number: 1/100 Original Painting: Sells for $150 on Bristol

If you've noticed I like to close the eyes of my characters. I think subliminally, this was something that I picked up from Ernie Barnes. As I've learned more about him, I heard and read him state that he closes the eyes as a symbolic gesture to demonstrate man's inability to see one another's humanity (I'm paraphrasing). For me...that's not it at all...and I've been doing this since before I can remember. The reason I do it is because I've always felt that we experience moments more deeply when we perceive them rather than see them. I've always felt like my characters appear to be completely engaged in whatever it is that they're doing in that space and in that moment in time. See with your mind not with your eyes...that's my new mantra.

And that's that.

Ernie Barnes: A Modern American Master

20130819-234001.jpgThis is head and shoulders my favorite artist. Several reasons besides the fact that he's a wizard at his craft. First, I grew up on his work. For those who are unfamiliar, this painting entitled "Sugar Shack" was the signature piece for the 1970's sitcom "Good Times." All of the paintings with the exception of the Jesus painting that appeared on the Evans' living room wall were Barnes pieces. There was nothing cooler than the episodes when JJ (Jimmie Walker) who was playing the role of a young aspiring artist in the Housing Projects of Chicago, would reveal a new piece. You can see Barnes' influence in a lot of the artwork of contemporary favorites like Charles Bibbs, Justin Bua, and Frank Morrison. Another reason he sits at the top of my list is that he and his daughter attended the same university that my wife and I did our undergraduate study... North Carolina Central University in Durham. This is my man! Love him too, or I'm coming to find you. Ha You can view more of his artwork at:

Blow Daddy - Snoop (Levi Robinson)

This too is sort of a test or experiment. It's an experiment in style and everything. I've never done a piece in this style before. Sort of a contemporary cubist style. I enjoyed the process and I'm sorta happy with the outcome. Which by the way is a big change for me because I've never been happy with the outcome of my work. Any feedback is certainly welcomed. Constructive of course.
