About this Art

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch black wood frame with UV-glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.

"This piece exists as a fun exercise of me being influenced by the ideas, words and pictures from some pretty radical creative thinkers. Most of the characters in the piece are manifestations of Ralph Steadman’s reactions to Hunter S. Thompson’s wild Gonzo persona and my imaginings of how they would all huddle together around a core value in Hunter’s work – the eternal search for truth.

When I created this piece I was inspired by the double-feature articles I was writing for Juxtapoz last year, a cover feature on Steadman and a piece on Hunter. I researched for about three months, reading everything I could find, looking at all the images, articles, documentaries and interviews I could find. I collected editions of both guys’ books as part of the research, trying to find first printings or hard to find books of Steadman’s art so I could hold something with that original energy – it might sound silly but I’m old fashioned in some ways. So while I was doing the research and reading, I was also coming up with ideas and did a decent sized piece about the collaborative madness that Steadman and Hunter shared." - Nathan Spoor

Nathan Spoor is an artist and writer living in Los Angeles, CA, whose work is highly regarded by several prestigious collections and publications worldwide.



A practitioner and student of Suggestivism, Spoor’s paintings involve images of transition and growth; fluid narratives that chronicle a world rich with the mystery, joy, pain, and delicate balance of personal and spiritual evolution. Believing that continuous study of technique and process are critical to his own growth as an artist. No image or canvas is too precious to wipe, repaint, and even burn on his own journey to discovery and expression. In this way, Spoor makes a personal and transformative connection with each piece that for him lives on beyond the finished works.



With a writing style that shows an impressive passion and understanding of the arts in context, Spoor continues to bring challenging and informative text to readers of such internationally acclaimed publications as Hi Fructose, BL!SSS, Juxtapoz, Grand Central Press and The Surfer's Journal in an intelligent and educated fashion.
