Greetings! I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this weird time we’re all experiencing. As most of you know I’m the artist that co-created CZARFACE with Esoteric, Inspectah Deck and DJ 7L.
Just wanted to share a painting I started as the quarantine started. The quarantine brought me back to the days when I couldn’t go out to play as a child and there would be hours on end you were left alone because your immigrant parents worked endless hours to start a new life. I used my time back then constantly creating and playing through my art. I tried to remember what imagery or character had such a profound impact on me and this was what I remembered. Spider-Man! Mid to late 70s. I was always fascinated by how perfectly Spider-Man always was in different poses. I loved copying Marvel covers and Spider-Man was always the hardest to render because of not only his proportions but also his line work. I guess all this time has me remembering what it was like when I didn’t have so many freedoms. Escaping back into my art was always an option. Anyway, this painting is currently for sale. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to purchase. 50”x50” mixed media on canvas. - LAmour
