It's been a heavy week working on the Mandela piece. The good people from the Carnaby St offices came by and took a shot of me working.
I was contacted a few months ago to create a Biggie piece in my style. Honestly I didn't really know what my style was at the time as the majority of my works differ depending what mood I'm in.
A week prior to being contacted about this piece I was in New York with my lady and we visited The Met. We spent hours exploring the rooms taking every bit of it in. We then came to The Masters section. It blew me away and inspired me more than anything I had ever seen. It was from this point I knew I wanted to develop my work using oils.
This piece means a lot to me as it set up my show, "Master Impressions" with Freshly Baked Gallery and set the tone for current and future works.
