Consider myself self taught/pseudo naive with a few classes in color interpretation thrown in for fun. Elizabeth Grady graduate for make up.
To label my genre of work would fall into the category of "POP". Roy Lichtenstein I worship. Paint is my thing. I work in mostly acrylics but will use anything that will stain canvas or paper (beet juice and red wine work extremely well). Hey, That's what they did in Cleopatras' time. My work is generally on a very large scale.
A normal painting can range from 20-40 feet wide. With that being said I do an initial drawing for large venues (nightclubs etc.), paint the mural, then 400 to 1000 people a night see my work. Way more than a gallery show. Then put the work on canvas. At that point I can sell a canvas.
I'm not big on galleries, I just find them pretentious plus the anxiety that goes with an opening. Ikes.
So I don't do things conventionally but it kinda works for me. Vinny
