New Video from Germany- "Portrait of a Dying Cockroach"


Here's a new timelapse video of a piece I painted for the Public Provocations show at the Carhartt Gallery held during the last Art Basel in Switzerland. This was painted with just spraypaint and fatcaps, no stencils or projectors, etc. As I explained in this earlier post, this was based on a photograph I took of a cockroach on the floor of the Margulies Collection when we painted their building during the last Miami Art Basel. It felt appropriate to then paint this during the Swiss Art Basel, alongside all the glamour and wealth. (Someone told me they don't have roaches in Switzerland)
Many thanks to Dans & the crew at Carhartt Gallery for putting this together.

hello mr. mac. i came upon your work today by way of the website Lines and Colors, and was completely blown away by the amount of heart and dedication you have. your images are not only beautiful but uniquely stylized to create an even further impact. thanks for all your variety of work from large scale city murals to the smaller gallery canvas.

i am also greatly influenced by 15th and 14th century artists, although my work does not completely show it yet, but i'm glad to see the influence behind your work as well. thanks again and i'll come back again soon.
