I worked with a great crew at Spaeth Design Nyc on these high end artistic window productions in the years 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Figures, sculpture, paint, costuming.
The Coney Island boardwalk scene was a special project produced by Spaeth Design for Junior’s cheesecake and restaurant. To be mounted at their new location in Boca Raton FL.
The layout and combination of details was designed by Spaeth staff, I painted the mural with some assistance of Spaeth painters.
Acrylic, glazes on canvas. 7.5ft x 25 ft
To complete the Frida Kahlo theme and collection I wanted to paint a few portraits or scenes where Frida and Diego are together.
They needed each other and regardless of the tumultuous relationship could not do without each other.
This large painting is on an art truck, (“acrylic on truck”), often parked in Williamsburg BK on Bedford Avenue on the North Side.
I chose the Industry mural theme for Diego as the backdrop because as a communist he stood up for the people, worker rights, and he appreciated the development of the job industry even though he struggled with the capitalist market aspect. The DIA Detroit Institute of Art director did have major objections when Diego painted the factory workers on theses fresco murals, glorifying the work force.
I also love that the Diego mural represents the world’s first car assembly line built and designed in Detroit, Edsel and Henry Ford.
Sculptures are my main passion in art, I enjoy the physical aspect of bringing a concept, an image, a portrait into the 3dimensional form.
Shaping clay or carving into materials, it all represents a joy of bringing out the shape of an object.
The above sculptures were created with the Spaeth Design team for Barnes & Noble New York in August 2015. They are 3/4 life size and are structured to hold their books on display in their windows and display areas.
I was asked to do the Amy doll for the Inside Amy Schumer Production for a funny sketch of her jokes and humor.
I made the doll, the vomit rig and all accessories.
