Guitar Man (red)
acrylic on canvas
36” x 24”
This is an image of a guitarist I have worked into more than one painting. I wanted to replicate the multiple silk-screened imagery of Andy Warhol, but I wanted to "paint" the multiples instead of just screening or printing them. This painting, along with Guitar Man (blue) and Guitar Man (yellow), was made by painting a washed-out version of a photograph and "colored" by running wet acrylic paints over each painting.
These paintings look fantastic hung next to each other as a set of three, taking up quite a bit of wall.
