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.

To purchase prints visit my shop at The Colorful Life of Snoop.

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

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:
