Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

I painted this while in a 6x9 prison cell serving a life sentence for a first time non-violent drug crime when I passed an envelope containing 4 ounces of cocaine for the sum of five hundred dollars. My most famous painting exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art as centerpiece for Mike Kelley's installation "Pay for Your Pleasure" at his retrospective. Also displayed there in 2004 at my art show book party thrown by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. see video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVa-P7VeUt4
