Cristina 1996

This is the first of what was to become a series using a more vandalized, deteriorated painting style on my painting. It began as a portrait of what would become a very very X-girlfriend, It looked amazing just like her, no naturally i had to vandalize it! It became more my own than her own and although it was a very very messy style it was something I returned to often, I used it on a set for 7even and Vampire in Brooklyn, (I know i’m dating myself but hey, this painting is from 1996, so it’s already dated!). I see a lot of urban artist doing styles similar to this these days, that’s why I stopped.
