My recent commission pays a little visit to Patrick Bateman../. / And this time he’s in a gang/. /.. / Americans./
‘American’ Bukowski / Thompson / Bateman Acrylic and Spray on Plywood 40 cm x 40 cm each
Another one bites the dust!.. . . .. . .. .. . . A few weeks back i was asked if i could paint a portrait of Patrick Bateman with mouths for eyes, What took so long was waiting to find a suitable piece of wood to paint this psychopath on to. But last week i dragged this incredible piece of Chipboard out of a skip and got going. I’ve never painted chip board before and i think it could become a new favourite surface.. . . .. / . / .
‘Shut Your Fucking Mouth’ Acrylic on Chipboard 120 x 120 cm
As a painter who’s main work steers away from painting faces and giving the characters identities i do seem to be getting an awful lot of requests to do portraits and faces.. . .. .. / . / .
Here is the latest commission in progress, It will eventually be a portrait (sort of) of Patrick Bateman (American Psycho – Christian Bale)
