last night i participated in a Live Art Battle with four other local visual artists. we had three hours to create a piece of work on a 36 × 36 canvas
it was such a pleasant experience, i went into my zone and created a masterpiece.
it was completely my environment, i threw on some headphones and just went to work. i was in the ring with some of the greatest visual artists in Shreveport; it’s surreal how this came together. im super thankful to have been able to make it to this event.
i wanted to paint the first thing that came to my mind.. using my knowledge of art and color theory i painted in a style of my recent illustrations, i was thinking YELLOW the entire trip from New Orleans and was demanding to incorporate the color no matter what.
i also wanted to use negative space to set myself apart from the other contenders as I was expecting given their previous works. im known for minimalism and surrealism in my art. paintings by me are extremely rare to come across for im a pen kind of guy
Shreveport thank you for having me.
the first thing i ate when i got to Shreveport was Ki Mexico, it’s so refreshing; i spent some time with very close friends as well.
