Sgt.Peppers lonely hearts club band

art, Beatles, Portrait, Rock

Finished this a while ago.

It took 9 painting sessions with acrylic paints to get this done, and the feeling on the Sunday when I but my signature on it was great.

Most importantly the owner of this piece was very pleased with the outcome.

“All you need is love” painted on a 147cm x 297cm concrete pillar with acrylics.

A very public piece.

art, Painting, Portrait

I was commissioned a while ago to do a painting on a pillar at a local pub called 60’s palaver. The pub has a 60’s theme and they wanted something that would fit the place, I had a few ideas immediately but the one I have a picture of was the best.

I am painting a pillar inside the restaurant and I am doing this while the bar is open. This means that the painting process can be seen by anyone who is there to enjoy a drink or a few. Every Thursday from now on I am gathering my equipment and heading of to do a session of painting, and every Thursday people can see more progress that will eventually lead to a finished piece that fits the 60’s themed really nicely.

Here’s the sketch I did on a smaller scale.

And here’s what I got done after 6 hours last Thursday.

Cobain

art, Grunge, Kurt Cobain, Mixed media, Portrait, Rock

I started this a while ago and yesterday I had the time to finally get it finished.

Like the ones done earlier I only used spray paints and markers on this too. The piece is 100cm x 125cm and the next thing, so I can call it done is to frame it and get it to it’s new owner.

I did listen to Nirvana a lot when I was a young boy. I still do sometimes, and when I was busy with my markers on this one, I of course listened to some Nirvana.

And here is the piece still on my easel. The guns are airsoft guns for a sculpture I am working on.

Rocking it!

Rocking it! On tour.

These paintings have been touring around the town for a while now. I found a place for them for the rest of the year, partially because I have so much other stuff to do and to focus on that I don’t want to be moving them around all the time.

This is the space they are displayed at right now.

I also made a little poster to tour with the paintings.

For a sneak peak of what I am spending my time with now I’ll post this.

I will try to get more in to this piece and the process behind it when I have the time.

Now I am of to work.

Have fun!
