A quick piece, done with left over cans from the most recent "Graffiti" piece. Stuck on the tropical sunset color scheme
I am not the first to do most of the things that I do. It’s my take on things I’ve thought about or that influenced me. I’ve seen plenty examples of people who did similar methods (past and present).
I’m more concerned with innovation or building on past ideas, rather than forced inventiveness. I feel that the more you experiment (let go) the more likely that you will stumble upon something new, or at least new to you.
I feel that the fear of doing something that has been done before is what keeps people stuck in the same bullshit that they have been running for the past 10 or so years. Identities that fit within a box.
If your personality is truly tied in with your work, if your work is a natural reflection of yourself. Then what you do (original or not) will always be uniquely yours, no matter what style you do. Established ideas should get filtered through you with an interesting spin or straight up referenced without apology.
