    caret-down caret-up caret-left caret-right "I feel like skateboarding is as much of a sport as a lifestyle, and an art form, so there's so much that that transcends in terms of music, fashion, and entertainment." - Tony Hawk In my formative years, call it age 7-12, I was obsessed (not unlike many a youth) with skateboarding. I loved skateboard banners and anything from So-Cal that had to do with […]
  • darth vader pop artStaring at my first Basquiat
    The Radiant Child (Jean-Michel Basquiat):  "A Basquiat Sells for ‘Mind-Blowing’ $110.5 Million at Auction" was the recent headline from the New York Times. And then:  "Joining the rarefied $100 million-plus club in a salesroom punctuated by periodic gasps from the crowd, Jean-Michel Basquiat’s powerful 1982 painting of a skull brought $110.5 million at Sotheby’s, to become the sixth most […]
  • triple robocop warhol style artTriple Robocop
    1 For some reason, maybe it's a futurist thing, but I'm increasingly drawn to robots and the imagery of robots. Ex Machina was one of my favorite movies of 2014. Ava, the robot pseudo-heroine was naive, robot smart (i.e. Genius), vulnerable and yes, attractive. To me, it's real. Robots are REAL. It doesn't take much of an imagination anymore to realize the potential that is on the very near […]
  • cara delevingne moviesThe Perfect Face
    1 Cara Delevingne in a classic silk screen Warholian style. There are few people that have left such an odd, everlasting impression as Andy Warhol. I believe, if he were alive, his top muse would be Cara Delevinge. . . and that is because, he too had impeccable taste 🙂 […]
  • CONTEMPORARY ART DENVERA Time to Reflect
    It's Monday, and I'm sitting at Rubio's Coastal Grill. Having just finished a delicious Burrito Especial, I sit here with a few minutes to reflect. A time to reflect on my first commissioned street art project. It was very happenstance, the way it came together. Sort of. I remember I had just got fired from my then (and last) corporate job, and thinking to myself, "I need to find a way to get my […]

    Title: Jd ReduxMixed Media - Acrylic On Canvas-surj 1 DESCRIPTION Why Warhol? An unlikely, yet, possibly seemingly person. . .. Although, Not particularly much of . . . Anything. At first glance. A wig? Odd hair? Odd glasses? Eccentric? Soft Spoken? So why? Why and how did Andy Warhol come to change the landscape of Fine Art, and ultimately define what Pop Art is? Sure, there is Lichtenstein.

  • latex or acrylicWhat is the difference between acrylic paint and latex paint?
    Is that a Damien Hirst SPOT painting?! Oh wait, it's just some emptied prescription bottles I had laying around . . . With paint atop the caps!   A While back (Disclaimer: at times, I'm a bit unorganized), I realized I had accumulated more than a few medicine containers that I hadn't used, or the bottles were empty, and I hadn't thrown them away. Doing my small part to save the environment (and […]
  • pirate ship stencil artWho likes pirate ships?
    A Word from Surj In the final throws of cutting this six-layer stencil. This is a commission piece for a good friend of mine who likes pirate ships. This has been an undertaking, given the size (36"x30".) This will also be the first canvas that is 100% stencils (which means LOTS of cuts!) I utilize stencils in various ways, but typically as a main graphic or for texturizing. This is NEW, and I'm […]
