Vernissage: Remember Me When I’m Famous

2018-01-22 @ 9:00 pm - 2018-01-23 @ 1:00 am

Remember Me When I’m Famous is a collection of acrylic paintings made on an iPad. Being a designer by trade, with a background in technology I was comfortable using this medium.

The paintings themselves reframe hyper masculine 1990’s WWF heroes. By creating a still image of these wrestlers in flamboyant costumes, and over the top make-up, the viewer must contemplate the personality and character they portrayed – separate from any hyper masculinity they presented in the ring. It was also an opportunity to put a spotlight on other important wrestlers – like Sapphire, the Fabulous Moolah, and Chyna.

As an untrained artist these paintings are probably best described as naive vaudeville – accessible, and fun. Hope you enjoy.

Prints $75
Framed $150

Editions of 3.

I will also have special, limited edition merch (tshirts, sweaters, knick knacks for sale).
