Excuuuuse Meeeee! - G1988's Steve Martin Tribute Show
Title: Atomic Steve
Size: 9" x 12"
Medium: Acrylics on Board
Here's a new piece for G1988's (Venice) latest group show. A tribute to Steve Martin: Comedian, actor, banjo player, writer, art collector, cat juggler, renaissance man.
The composition is based off of the photo of Salvador Dali called Dali Atomicus. The name of that photo is a reference to the name of the painting in that photo. So, I guess this painting references a photo, that references a painting. Why Salvador Dali? Steve Martin's approach to comedy and his writing, can sometimes come across just as surreal as a Dali painting in all the best ways. I hope I run into him one day just so I can get one of his business cards.
