"I find particular pleasure in finding a unique balance between abstract and figurative work. There was a good deal of time dedicated to discovering the materials and mediums at hand. It's a delicate process at times and it can easily be overworked. Once I find the right "feel", I then birth the figures that were lying right below the surface. It's essentially layers upon layers of colors, textures, and love making both literally and figuratively.
I created the original Homies 4 Life painting in 2012, and I just really wanted to paint something for the homies. This piece is meant to honor all the homies in the world from the past, present, and future. Especially dinosaurs, but not the ones with social disorders. The original is sold, and was approximately 48in x 48in. For this RUN I will be hand-embellishing each print, so each will be slightly different and unique." - Jasper Wong
