ARTIST ON THE ROAD
Did this painting yesterday in a beach parking lot in San Diego. Was a good release to get some paint on the canvas. It’s still intimidating being a public artist just painting out of the back of my van! Although it’s getting easier the more I do it 🙂
For this painting I used acrylic for the background, then layered spray paint using stencils and cardboard cutouts. I am trying to build up a bit of a gallery in the van so I have some examples to show people. I also am working on a piece for my friend Manny who lives in Pahrump, NV. Once I establish myself here, it shouldn’t be too hard to maintain this lifestyle.
The tricky part is finding a niche that I like and sticking to it. The more I talk to people, they ask what my style is. I find myself struggling to find an answer because I have lots of styles! I think the best description for my work is is Impressionism/graffiti. I still refuse to stick to one style as I think it limits my customer base. At the same time I’m worried if I don’t have a go to style that makes me stand out, I may be overlooked. I will keep practicing and trying new things until I nail this technique. Until then, please give feedback on new art posts from me.
