Art Description

New Media: Acrylic, archival pigment ink , acrylic gouache on Canvas.

This new mixed media on canvas is part of that journey, with some new hand-painted details...motivated by good vibes, love, and respect for a being who inspired many to leap into their own unknown and follow their hearts. The way I experience life...We Can Be Heroes by taking those leaps and fulfilling our lives, that energy has the ability to inspire others too. Proceeds from this painting are being shared with one of my hero's, documentary filmmaker Michael Rossato_Bennett's organization http://www.aliveinside.us/#land
whose efforts continue to build bridges with you, elders and the healing power of music.

In January 2016 I woke up to the news of David Bowie's passing. Automatically my response was to stop the series I had been working on, fill my studio with his music and while following the flow of my feelings (the feelings of the world), his music ( as well as loads of his interviews) filled my studio as I filled canvases.
A journey began as suddenly as his passing. A few months later I would be driving from Toronto to NYC to paint a mural beside his families home, a few months after that I would be invited back to paint live with his band in New York and Los Angeles. A year later, just before showing in LA with The Other Art Fair David Bowie's wife, Iman, added this image to her Instagram which immediately filled my heart with immense gratitude...
