BLACK MAKEUP. The Spilt Ink
"BLACK MAKEUP"

By The Spilt Ink

Painting details:

- High quality cotton canvas

- Painted with spray paint & acrylic paint

- The colors are vibrant and sharp and they also look amazing under a black light

- SIZE is 70CM X 110CM or 27.5 inches X 43 inches

- Unframed but framing is easy.

This is a finished painting that was painted live at club VISION in Tokyo, Japan. It is inspired by all the amazing electronic music that was preformed live while I was painting the piece.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

All the best,

Andrew Carnegie by THE SPILT INK

Andrew Carnegie by THE SPILT INK

Andrew Carnegie in his time was a financial genius who overtook the world of money and power. When he died he donated his fortune. There are few who can climb so high and still keep it real.

The original painting is acrylic and spray on canvas.
4ft X 5 ft

Thank you for your support!

Japan
I was born and raised in the greater Detroit area. Spent most of my time absorbing techno and going to raves.

Eventually I got serious and went to San Francisco to take my chances as a fashion photographer.

The dream changed when I discovered the beauty of Photoshop, and god I love her. I soon decided to keep photography as a lifelong hobby and then I became an art director. Jesus, I sold my soul to the Advertising world.

The whole time as I was whoring I was also DJing and organizing events. I think that the beauty and aggression of Drum and Bass saved my mental state as I worked in the restrictions of advertising, I mean, I never went postal or anything.

You've got to realize how much advertising sucks. First you come up with a kick ass idea and then everyone in your department waters it down. If you're lucky you can present whats left of your idea to the client and then the client waters it down even more. It's kind of like getting kicked in the nuts over and over again, but at the end of the month you get paid.

Well sure enough the bitter bite of the ad world forced me out of the game and I decided to come to Tokyo to see what life had for me. I wasn't that adventurous or anything though, I had a lot of Japanese friends who were already living here so I had a lot of hook ups.

As soon as I hit the green tea soaked concrete of Tokyo I was DJing again and soon after that I was organizing events at such clubs as YELLOW, Milk, The Ruby Room, Amate Raxi, etc.

I love organizing events, making people dance to good music is such and important thing. I think that everyone needs to forget about their shitty jobs and to hit the dance floor. It is such a positive way to feel life and to be alive.

Well, seven years later I'm still organizing events and DJing here in Tokyo. To be honest, I can't stop it. It is like a vicious addiction that I can't shake. It is just like my art. I've been making these images for years and years and years and I can't stop.

I get a story in my head and I choose and image to represent the story, kind of like a poster represents a movie. Then I make the image and I ask the world to decide what the story is.
To each person, they decide a different story with a different ending. Everyone is the story teller. Now if I could make them dance while they look at my images I'd be a happy boy.
