Kanye West

My girlfriend told me she wanted me to do more commercial artists. Kayne, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, etc. So I decided to do a Kanye piece. I think Kanye is a great artist. Love his instrumentals, and he has become a just as good as a producer as he his a rapper. I liked the way this turned out. I plan on breaking the "only paint underground rappers" mold. One painting at a time. lol. This was also featured in "You Know My Steez 2" Art Show

  1. This is a really terrific piece. I love the way you handled the background and also the mild colors and washy brushwork in his sweater. Also really like the watery, organic shapes in contrast with the crisp angularity of his hairline. I think that kind of juxtaposition (hard/soft, organic/angular, intense color/faded soft color is really strong, and looks very modern. Excellent portrait, too.
