Price range information: Sorry none available.

The artist worked in oils, enamel, and gouache.

From a design standpoint its amazing how many shapes the artist was able to include in his work without giving the viewer the sense of too much motion and clutter. A great example of organized abstraction!

I enjoy the way he makes faces using very simple shapes a la the great American street artist Barry McGee.
