Memes is coming this Friday at Gallery 1988.
My piece is inspired by “Insanity Wolf” and all his dark hilarious madness from teh webz. I didn’t want to go too hardcore violent or crazy, but I thought I could reference Shepard Fairey‘s recent legal trouble over his iconic “Hope” Obama poster and his drama with the Associated Press. Not everyone will be in on the various jokes of this piece or the rest from the show, but hopefully those that do strike a chord will get a positive response. I’m just glad there won’t be comments available in a forum for the show!
Here’s my original idea, through a quick mockup:
And the final executed piece:
Acrylic on paper, mounted to wood panel, resined.
22″ x 22″ (2012)
