Oil and spray paint on canvas

Description

I teamed up with realist painter Mason Storm in a collaborative portrait of my all-time hero Francis Bacon. The idea was to see how our very different individual styles (Mason’s hyperrealism / my expressionism) would work side by side on one canvas. Mason was to precisely capture the man himself (in black and white), whilst I achieve a likeness through colourful chaos, amidst a nod to Bacon’s work.

This has been acknowledged by the official Francis Bacon Estate as “A wonderful idea, with a fantastic result.”
